The key activities taking place at the Hamilton Chamber this week:
Hamilton Chamber hosting Canadian Chamber of Commerce annual conference
The Hamilton Chamber is proud to be hosting this year’s Canadian Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting (conference) and the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada conference. These meetings will be held in Hamilton starting tomorrow, September 20 and continue through to September 25, and provide us with the opportunity to tell Hamilton’s business story and showcase our great city. Please log onto our conference micro-site (hamiltonccc2012.ca) for updates leading to the conferences as well as the Canadian Chamber site (chamber.ca).
Delegates from across the country – businesspeople, government ministers, media and Chamber executives – will be experiencing our warm hospitality. Business meetings will take place at both the Hamilton Convention Centre and the Sheraton Hamilton hotel. Delegates will also explore the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, LIUNA Station, downtown restaurants and spousal tours will take in the west harbour, Dundurn Castle, Royal Botanical Gardens, Battlefield House, Puddicombe Winery and more. We encourage our members to consider attending either all or part of the conference, such as our Hamilton Night that we will host on September 23 at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. Please call the Hamilton Chamber office with any questions you may have about these conferences. The Hamilton Chamber would like to thank our members who have invested in sponsorships for the conference – they are acknowledged on the hamiltonccc2012.ca website.
