It’s a tag line attributed to Gail Asper – “Guests are coming”. It was said to prepare Manitobans that we can expect more visitors before the opening of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The tagline was echoed again before a crowded room at the Norwood Hotel by World Trade Centre Winnipeg President and CEO Mariette Mulaire on Monday, January 27th.

Opening the 2016 MBiz Breakfast Series Presented by 6P Marketing, Mulaire shared the energetic pitch she makes to business people from around the globe of what Winnipeg and our province has to offer. From our central location, hydroelectricity, space, land, agriculture to our cold weather expertise and our world-class research, Ms. Mulaire has a number of areas to share with businesses looking to form a more productive relationship with Manitoba’s business community.

All of that led into providing more details on Centrallia 2016, which happens in Winnipeg May 25-27 at the RBC Convention Centre. So just what is Centrallia? For those who missed the breakfast presentation, Centrallia is an international business-to-business forum focused on generating trade opportunities for companies.
