Education from the 2017 Unconvention


At the 2017 Meetingmax Unconvention, our attendees had the opportunity to visit 9 unique Vancouver venues and attend 19 education sessions focused on expanding their event housing knowledge! They also learned new techniques for stress management from painting, to traditional tea ceremonies, to taking time for a few deep breaths.

2018 Unconvention dates will be announced soon. Don't miss out on 2018 (it's our 10 year anniversary!!) Get Unconvention into your budget today!
