COVID-19 Advice for Events

Review the latest information for event organizers, communities and venues on the current situation.


There are many phases to event attraction and hosting, and we can help you with one or all of them. Here is an overview of the services we offer:

Bid Development
We help organizations and communities create winning bids for a variety of sporting, cultural and entertainment events.

Regional and Community Event Strategies
We work with communities to develop long-term strategies that align with the Nova Scotia Event Strategy, and help them independently attract strategic events to their region.

Event Consultation and Best Practices
We are happy to share our expertise and knowledge of the major event industry with our clients to help them in executing a professional and successful event.

Economic Impact Studies
Major events have a direct impact on our province’s economy and we know it’s important to assess that value. We support and train communities and event organizers to collect survey information from event attendees and participants to measure the success of an event.

Capacity Building and Education
We are supporting industries and municipalities with expertise to help deliver an authentic Nova Scotian world-class event experience. We are doing this by providing:

  • An online toolbox that allows better understanding of the business of events
  • Access to conferences with best practice information and workshops from event leaders world-wide
  • Training and service standards for those in the events industry

If your community needs this type of support, get in touch with our team for assistance.

Creating an Event Friendly Environment
From the taxi driver to the restaurant server and everyone involved in hosting a world-class event, we want to make it easier for visitors to enjoy the event experience and for event hosts to organize and execute events easily here. If your event or community would like to explore initiatives that enhance the event experience in Nova Scotia – give us a call!
