Shout Out to Square Balloon Films!

The release of CanSPEP's 20th anniversary video is due in large part to the expertise and assistance of Zacharie Ready at Square Balloon Films. Zach has edited and has done a ton of work ensuring the professional quality of the video.
Square Balloon Films is a Toronto-based video production company that provides full-service content creation, collaborating with you from your project's inception all the way through to its execution and final delivery. They work with corporations, small businesses, and non-profit organizations on everything from commercials and web promos to training videos and testimonials.
  • Learn From Fellow Members: Heather Reid of Heather Reid Consulting and Bettyanne Sherrer CMP, CMM of ProPlan Conference and Events will be presenting key topics at this year's Incentiveworks August 16 & 17  in Toronto. Bettyanne will join a panel of industry insiders to discuss State of the Industry: M+IT Meetings Market Report and Heather will help you build your contract knowledge in her session Building Your Contract Confidence.
  • Two Invaluable Manuals for Members: At CanSPEP's inaugural Business Summit July 10-11th, the Association launched two key event resources. The Risk Management Guide and the Accessibility Guide. Both are revised from previous editions and provide a wealth of information for event planners looking to upgrade, enhance or develop their skills in these areas. The guides include templates, definitions and checklists to help planners evaluate the various types of event risks and deliver accessible meetings.

    These guides are available as a member benefit in the members section of the website
  • Want to Profile Your Expertise? The CanSPEP blog is the perfect place to share your knowledge in your area of expertise and reach potential clients looking for assistance with their events.
