November 2, 2010

The Canadian meetings industry has not been affected by bedbugs, with just over 96 per cent of opinion-poll respondents reporting that their events hadn’t been impacted on-site by the nasty insects.

This, according to opinions gathered by M&IT magazine in a recent e-newsletter poll, a first for the Canadian meetings industry.

In the Oct. 28 edition of M&IT’s e-newsletter, we asked a series of questions relating to bedbugs. Below are the full results of that reader-opinion questionnaire.

Yes – 0%

No – 100%
