September | October 2014 | Ignitemag.ca | 3 THINKING BIG Planning an event for planners is not for the faint of heart. You are the experts in such things, after all. But knowing that pushes us to bring you the most unique and relevant Ignite Business Event (iBE) Expo possible. But we've got a secret weapon— and it's you! As we were planning last year's iBE, you told us the June date wasn't convenient, so we switched it to April. This year we've listened to your input again and made some fresh and exciting changes. Here's a look at what's new for 2015: NEW DIGS: We've moved downtown to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building, making it more convenient for the "downtown- ers" to access. ONE-DAY FORMAT: The iBE Expo will open earlier and close later, providing planners and exhibitors with more face-time opportuni- ties than the former two-day format. So bring your comfy shoes: April 15 is going to be one busy day on the show floor! TWO SHOWS IN ONE: We've co-located with the Canadian Special Events Expo (CSE), so you can attend both on the same day in the same place. And it's a great fit: Go to iBE to connect with the best in hotels, resorts, destinations and transportation and visit CSE for your venue, decor, entertainment and catering needs. That's time well spent! Of course, some things haven't changed: We've still got first-class education sessions, engaging speakers, the largest hosted planner pro- gram in Canada and all the surprising, fresh innovations that you've come to expect. And iBE remains an inte- gral part of Canada Meet Week, featuring must- attend events hosted by BEICC, SITE Canada, MPI, ISES Toronto and CanSPEP, plus the Canadian Special Events Conference and the Star Awards. So thank you for motivating us to think big—we are super-excited about iBE 2015 and we can't wait to hear what you think (and you know we'll listen!).
