2017 RCA Winners

HUGE Congratulations to the Winners of the
2017 Readers Choice Awards

Who Are Canada’s Favorite Event Suppliers?

It's happened!! Your clients and peers have shown their love and have VOTED for their Reader's Choice winners.  The 2017 Canadian Special Events Readers’ Choice Awards are the only event industry awards in Canada where the winners are chosen by their peers. Winners were selected and announced on March 28 at Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, ON.  Congratulations to everyone who participated and we wish you all best of luck next year.

1. How Did We Pick the Winners?

We did not pick the winners, the industry did. We asked our readers to nominate their favorite supplier, planner or colleague. All nominations were tallied and the finalists were listed for voting.

2. The Nominees Campaigned For Votes

Voting opened March 2, 2017. Once voting opened, finalists needed to campaign for votes.  They campaigned in a multitude of ways; online, emails, social media, and our set of online tools. They used blogs, LinkedIn and Twitter. The online voting process closed March 21, 2017.

3. Winners

Awards were presented  in Toronto on March 28, at the EXPERIENCE20! Opening Night Party at the Aga Khan Museum. Winners received a trophy, national recognition on canadianspecialevents.com, in Canadian Special Events Magazine and a series of online tools to help brag about their win.
