The Europe-based agency will open the office in the last quarter of this year and it will be led by Adriana Spitteler, who has been managing director of Congrex Travel AG in Basel since 1994.

Congrex chose Vancouver as its entry point into North America because the destination has grown rapidly with the reopening of the Vancouver Convention Centre and its hosting of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

"There is clearly an opportunity for new entrants in Canada, looking at the number of events organised there," said Spitteler. "By offering unique services and partnering with associations we will try to convince the Canadian market of our unique approach."
