ISLAND TOUR DAY

Thursday, June 14th is ISLAND TOUR DAY. You’ve come all the way to the East Coast and we want you to experience the Island and true PEI hospitality. The PEI Branch has put together 4 amazing tours that each give you a taste of something unique and foodie about the Island. There are enough seats on these tours for everyone attending the conference to participate in ONE tour. Spouses and sponsor partners are welcome.

 
Here’s the important part:  YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER TO ATTEND A TOUR! Pick your favourite from the list below and then follow these instructions:
 
  • If you are already registered to attend the conference, please send a quick email to Samantha letting us know which tour you would like to sign up for. 
  • New delegates, please select your tour when you register to attend at www.cdnchefsconference.ca

These tours do involve some time outside, in buildings and on the bus. Plan for the weather. Layering is a good idea in case the weather changes. We will meet in the hotel lobby at 9:00 am to start the day. Tours will return to the hotel around 3:00 pm – to ensure you have time to refresh before the President’s Dinner.

All tours include lunch.
