Enercare Centre Hosts Perfect China


Exhibition Place and Enercare Centre played host to delegates from Perfect (China) on Sunday, as part of the organization’s annual worldwide incentive event.

The 4,500 attendees spent the day in conference sessions at Enercare Centre before enjoying a lavish dinner for all delegates. More than 9,000 meals were served in a traditional Chinese style, serviced by the centre’s exclusive in-house caterer Spectra FS.

Perfect (China) has been in operation for more than 20 years and is one of that country’s leading direct-sales businesses. In previous years, cities such as Milan, Amsterdam and Los Angeles have hosted its annual incentive event. This was the first Canadian visit for Perfect (China). It is the largest incentive group ever hosted in the City of Toronto.

“We were so pleased to welcome the delegates from Perfect (China) at Enercare Centre,” said Arlene Campbell, general manager, Sales & Event Management, Exhibition Place. “With Exhibition Place’s premier convention centre, ideal location in downtown-west, picturesque groups and proximity to Pearson International Airport, we were a natural match for a group of this magnitude on their first Canadian visit.”

Dianne Young, CEO of Exhibition Place and chair of the UFI Sustainability Committee, said, “Exhibition Place was delighted to welcome Perfect (China) and their 4,500 attendees to the premier meeting place in the City of Toronto. With the dynamic Enercare Centre being a LEED Gold certified building and Allstream Centre a LEED Silver certified conference facility, we were able to host this large incentive group in an environmentally-sustainable manner.”
