MICE and Sport Tourism in the Yukon
The Yukon’s reputation as a desired destination for business and sporting events has spread around Canada and across the globe. Meeting and event planners seeking world-class, unique destinations have discovered that the Yukon’s exceptional value, outstanding Northern hospitality and authentic visitor experiences combine to create unforgettable events!
Without exception, delegates and participants are thrilled to learn that they are heading to the Yukon for their next meeting or event. For most, this once-in-a-lifetime adventure ‘North of 60’ expands to include extended family and enjoying an array of pre- and post-event activities. Delegate lists swell as the lure of the Yukon attracts above average attendance at meetings and events.
Top quality business and sports gatherings create an ideal mix of work and play, and the Yukon balances these professional and personal priorities masterfully. Meet in the morning, explore the mountains and rivers for an afternoon of team-building, and return to the city with plenty of time for shopping, dinner and an well-lit evening stroll or a round of golf under the Midnight Sun…or venture here during winter and learn to mush a team of friendly huskies and be enthralled by the Northern Lights as add-ons to your business or sport highlights.
