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.

Thereโ€™s nothing I love more than relaxing in a park-like setting to some awesome live music while enjoying a bite from a food truck and a cold beverage from the beer garden.

We put on a lot of our own, from concerts to Bobcats games, and we often play a big role in hosting major events, from conferences to Athletes Villages. Recently, weโ€™ve started directly supporting more local events, like the Brier, and I saw personally how dedicated people and volunteers were in high demand. Of course I wanted to help out!
๐™’๐™๐™–๐™ฉ'๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™—๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™š๐™ซ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช'๐™ซ๐™š ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™™๐™š๐™™ ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐˜ฝ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ค๐™ฃ? Hands down, my fondest event memory is Brandon is the World Youth Baseball tournament in the 1990s. We picked โ€œBrazilโ€ to be our team and cheered so hard for them that they eventually gave us hats.
