We’re blushing! Read on to see what previous meeting organizers and participants had to say.
“Whistler was a fantastic destination for the Federation of Canadian
Municipalities Annual Conference. We had our largest turnout ever (nearly
3000 delegates, spouses and exhibitors) as people were definitely attracted
to this unique destination.
The Conference Centre and hotels were great to work with and delivered
on all of our expectations and requests. The village itself offers great
restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and an abundance of activities ranging
from Zip-lining to kicking back on one of the numerous patios.
All-in-all it was a first class experience, starting with the easy transfer
from the airport to the village, right through the mountain -top reception.
Thanks to Whistler tourism for all the help you folks know how to do it
- Curtis O’Nyon
“We had a wonderful trip to whistler. Some of our attendees felt
it was the one of our 'best' reward trips. Your assistance was
very thorough and helpful. Thank you so much for encouraging our group
to dine at Bearfoot Bistro. It was AMAZING. Thanks to the complete package
of service, food and setting we had a most memorable evening and our group
was exceptionally impressed. It really added to our overall experience
in Whistler. Thanks again.”
- Lisa Doyle B.Comm., M.B.A

“We’ve been bringing scientific symposia to Whistler since
2001. Our attendees from around the world rave about the sites, facilities,
and service. We are proud to partner with Tourism Whistler.”
- Linda Hrycaj
“I have received many comments from attendees that 2004 was one
of the best President's Clubs ever. Whistler offers beautiful
scenery, great hotels, a diverse array of fun activities and warm, accommodating
people. ADP will certainly return.”
- Gretchen Doner
Director of Special Events, ADP
"We brought the sunshine, melted some snow, tried a little rafting,
biked, skied, kayaked, hiked, and left...now you have enrolled 350 new
goodwill ambassadors for the Resort! The conference worked well from start
to finish...superb catering...attentive courtesies and personal warmth...you
delivered over and above..."
- Alistair Allen
Legal & General Assurance Society
"We were very impressed with the service and very much appreciate
your personal attention ensuring that our meeting was successful"
- Lynda Cannell
Sports Medicine Council of BC
"First and foremost, the Ski experience at Whistler is second to
none… easily one of the best venues in North America, if not the
world. Our attendees literally skied until they had to stop from exhaustion,
but with smiles on their faces.
You have numerous hotel options and the new ballroom at the Fairmont Chateau
Whistler is big and beautiful. The hotels and the village work very well
together to address the special needs of your group. Everyone in the town
aims to please. The village is great and well laid out. Plenty of shops
and restaurants to suit anyone's tastes.
For summer, the golf options are equally spectacular with just the right
use of elevation in course layout. My only hesitation in recommending this
place to anyone is purely selfish, but when a place is so uniquely wonderful
and the people do such a good job, I suppose there is an obligation to
pass it along.”
- Jim Stanton
"The conference was outstanding...the facilities worked out great...my
complements to you and your staff"
- Dr. Brad Yee
BC Chiropractic Council
"...your service went over and above our optimistic expectations...your
accommodation of our last minute, emergency needs far exceeded any obligation
- Phil Johnston
"The breathtaking ride up the fully enclosed gondola is a highlight
for groups holding functions in this unique venue...the Roundhouse Lodge
sitting at the top of Whistler Mountain"
- Ann Hattes
Meetings in the West
"...Whistler has been ranked the premier ski resort in North America,
and has become the ideal destination for vacationers, meetings and conventions,
thanks in-part to presence of North America's longest vertical and
an impressive and rapidly growing pedestrian-only village, featuring funky
to chic restaurants, shops and accommodations."
- Jamie Parcells
