IMPORTANT NOTICE – Offices Closed but We’re Still Working Hard!

As a precaution during the unprecedented rapid spread of COVID-19 the Brandon First staff offices at the Dome Building and Scurfield Blvd in Winnipeg will be closed and our staff will be working remotely offsite until further notice to help limit the spread of the virus. Most already scheduled meetings for next week will be rescheduled or accommodated virtually through FaceTime or Zoom.

*We are still each completely reachable by email, and by phone at 204-729-2156*

We look forward to continuing our work with no loss of momentum and will continue to work with all our partners to determine how this will effect our event recruitment efforts in the near future.

Thank you for understanding and continuing to support Brandon First.

-Jenn, Sara and Pam

 


Brandon First is a not-for-profit Destination Marketing Organization that consists of a twelve member Board of Directors, a three person staff of a Development Coordinator, Regional Sales Coordinators in Brandon and Winnipeg, plus a base of over fifty local business stakeholders. We are committed to working as a cohesive group to promote Brandon, Manitoba as a host city for events.

We proactively source out events by attending conferences, meetings, sporting events and more to find the ones that are the right fit for our city, our venues and our market. We then work to find a local committee or interested party to pursue these potential leads. We also work with local organizations and committees who already have an idea in mind to bring their targeted event to the City of Brandon.

It is our goal to drive economic development in the city through multi-day event tourism, and successful event hosting.

I donโ€™t know that I have a favourite type as there are many factors that determine how I feel about an event. Things like the atmosphere, comradery, company, etc. I love music so concerts are great & if I can learn something, especially through hands on learning then attending an event of that type would rate pretty high.
๐™’๐™๐™ฎ ๐™™๐™ž๐™™ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™Ÿ๐™ค๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™—๐™ค๐™–๐™ง๐™™? As a founding member of Brandon First I canโ€™t imagine not being on the Board. Itโ€™s a personal passion for event Tourism and from a work perspective the economic activity that is generated by events, that keeps me interested in being part of Brandon First. On top of that its darn exciting to be instrumental in bringing exciting events to the community.

Having access to all amenities and services I want yet still having the feeling of living in a small town where you know most everyone.

Before family and work, I would have said night owl but now I would say morning person. I can roll out of the bed at 5:30 a.m. and be working within minutes, even if I didnโ€™t get to bed till after midnight.

Last week you helped us put together a great movie watch-list, now we want to know what the best TV shows are? Weโ€™ve exhausted our watch-lists and are looking for new shows to add. What shows are so good you have to binge-watch them?
