In November of 2017, the University of Victoria in partnership with Global Affairs Canada, were looking to host a conference on the topic of Diversity. They hoped to bring together policy makers, researchers, educators, community members and government, corporate leaders and students to discuss everything from Indigenous Inclusiveness to Climate Justice to Global Trade.
This ambitious three-day event was held in Victoria, BC, and included over 80 speakers, eight unique plenary and working sessions, gala events and six key conference themes. As a first time event, Proof Experiences played a key role in managing the Steering Committee of more than 20 academics and community leaders, guiding them through best event practises based on our extensive conference experience. We also supported the University and Global Affairs in managing the needs and expectations of partners like the World Wildlife Fund and The Trudeau Foundation. From high-level strategic planning to on-the-ground event management and logistics, our team of conference and event experts delivered a successful turnkey experience for all.
