COME STROLL THE AISLES OF “INCENTIVEWORKS” TRADE SHOW IN TORONTO

Each year, Saucy Minx likes to visit the IncentiveWorks trade show for special event planners and buyers. It’s held at the giant Metro Toronto Convention Centre and it’s always nice to run into friends and colleagues in the events business.  One of the first booths visited was Brand Blvd who were promoting their “Camp Brand Blvd” theme. The friendly camp councillors (below) made the visit fun and Saucy Minx scored a big coffee mug – thanks. Check out their catalogue of merchandise & logowear at www.brandblvd.ca   20170823_124652(0)Next up, Saucy Minx met Ronit from www.incredible-incentives.com (below) who presented her with the perfect corporate gift….20170823_125003

20170823_132959The chefs from ClubLink.ca put on a special show making ice cream with liquid nitrogen that looks more like dragon’s breath. Perfect for Game of Thrones fans…Saucy Minx tasted it and gave it her thumbs-up! 

Meet Susan Freeman from DPMurphyHotelsandResorts.com of Prince Edward Island. Susan kindly offered a seat to Saucy Minx who definitely needed a rest after enjoying the nitrogen ice cream and the lobster rolls from the Halifax booth (see below). 20170823_13504420170823_133959While visiting the Maritimes aisle, Saucy Minx stopped for some fiddle entertainment courtesy of the Cape Breton folks eventscapebreton.com
