The purpose of this Negotiated Request for Proposal (the “NRFP”) is to solicit proposals for an in-depth impact and legacy study for international business events hosted in Canada by an expert independent organization.

Business Events is a network of organizers, service providers, suppliers and facilities engaged to develop and deliver meetings, conferences, exhibitions and related activities. They provide a forum for economic, academic, professional, and business interactions to exchange ideas, build connections and develop new ideas, concepts and knowledge. They are a highly efficient and cost-effective vehicle for driving economic recovery, renewal and development. 

The value of Business Events goes way beyond “tourism” and stays within a destination. Many of the most important benefits are long-term, currently, the DC does not have proof of the presence, scale and scope of these medium to long-term benefits and are seeking a contractor to conduct a study.
