Business Events Legacy Council
What's your legacy?
The Business Events Legacy Council is a prestigious platform for our city's renowned innovators and thought leaders. These individuals contribute to Edmonton's ongoing economic growth and reinforce our reputation for excellence in academic research and business.
While the Explore Edmonton team is made up of experts in attracting and organizing events, we work with members of our legacy council to enhance events in our key economic sectors. Events may also come to Edmonton through our ambassadors, so we are here to support with complimentary services throughout the entire process.
From researching the viability of an event, to being there on the day of, we will do the heavy lifting so ambassadors can focus on what they do best - making Edmonton a great place to live and work.
Who Are Legacy Council Ambassadors?
Members of our legacy council are leaders, pioneers, or influencers in their fields who want to strengthen Edmonton's economy and community. Our local experts do this in the following ways:
- They host conferences and events on behalf of their industry with Explore Edmonton's assistance
- They help meeting planners and delegates connect with the local community
- They share knowledge and expertise on an international stage
- They determine potential conference opportunities in their field that could be held in Edmonton
- They enrich the conference experience for delegates by showcasing all that Edmonton has to offer
Legacy council ambassadors are leaders in our key sectors of excellence. If you're an event planner hosting an event in one of these sectors, let us connect you with one of our ambassadors!
