Let's Bring It
This is Steve. He recently brought his entire industry association meeting to Victoria and it was incredible. Now, the finest drink in town is named after him. When he goes whale watching, the whales watch him. He is internationally known as a captain of his industry.

As a financial incentive for successfully bringing a business event opportunity to the City of Victoria, 1% of hotel guest room revenue will be paid back to the successful local host themselves or their organization or the organization's foundation. The local host can choose.
Example based on 500 room nights generated:
500 room nights x $225 room rate each x 1% incentive = $1,125 paid out
Funds will be paid out upon completion of the business event and the confirmed room nights will be finalized by Business Events Victoria and contracted hotels. Funds will be distributed based on the actual confirmed rooms purchased in the City of Victoria under contracted hotel room blocks.
