The WPRF Breaks the Ice
Hockey Hall of Fame

Since no visit to Canada would be complete without a little hockey, WPRF delegates will bump elbows with the who’s who of PR and Communications from around the world in one of Toronto’s most beloved venues. Enjoy great food and entertainment while perusing the largest collections of memorabilia dedicated to Canada’s winter sport, including the one and only Stanley Cup.

Embarking on #NewRelationsShips
Royal Canadian Yacht Club

Following a full day of professional development, WPRF delegates will swap their dress shoes for deck shoes and enjoy an excursion to the Toronto Islands for an evening of fun and hospitality at Canada’s premier sailing and social venue – the Royal Canadian Yacht Club.  After taking in the breathtaking views of Lake Ontario on one side, and the city skyline on the other, delegates will be treated to some of the best food, drink and local entertainment money can buy.

*Please note, delegates will arrive on the Island via ferry, therefore it is recommended that attendees bring appropriate footwear to wear while on board.
