WorldPride 2014 - Toronto Bid

Client: Tourism Toronto / Pride Toronto

Dragos Productions was retained to manage the hospitality program for Toronto at the 2009 InterPride Annual General Meeting, where Pride Toronto and its partners Tourism Toronto and the City of Toronto successfully bid for WorldPride 2014.

Dragos Productions knowledge of the venue (Tradewinds Resort) proved critical in the development of a cost-effective plan to woo delegates. Our responsibilities included all aspects of planning and implementing the signature cocktail party; handling all aspects of the performance by Deborah Cox, including artist rider, transportation, comfort and stage management; menu selection and decor for a Toronto-sponsored lunch at the conference and other elements of the strategy to encourage delegates to vote for Toronto's bid.
