Quesnel City Council has unanimously endorsed an application to host the Minerals North Conference in 2020.
Economic Development Officer Amy Reid explains…
“The event is similar in scale to the NCLGA conference which has been held in Quesnel in the past. There will be key note speakers, a trade show, an educational component, meals and entertainment.”
The tentative dates would be April 29th through May 1st in 2020.
Mayor Bob Simpson notes that it is in line with where they’d like to see Quesnel go…
“Strategically we’ve indicated we would like to become a hosting community. I think we’ll learn lots when the bonspiel comes up and i know that the Events Coordinator is saying there are actually quite a few opportunities coming up for us to host events.”
The successful applicant will be announced at this year’s Minerals North conference in Houston, BC.
