It’s Time To Celebrate From Coast to Coast!

It’s that time of year where we’d be getting ready to celebrate the 28th Annual RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards finalists at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto … but this year we’re taking the show on the road and inviting you to join us for our inaugural (virtual) national gala celebration!

Designed as an experiential virtual event and live awards broadcast, for the first time ever, attendees will be able to join in on an immersive cross-country tour to meet our 2020 finalists right in their hometowns. Ticket holders from coast to coast will have the opportunity to connect with fellow guests, past award winners, and current finalists in a dynamic virtual reception, before being transported into an interactive Awards Gala broadcast where they’ll get a glimpse into exactly where the country’s leading innovation is coming from.

Join us on Wednesday, November 18th to hear the extraordinary stories of our five Ones to Watch Recipients and 18 National Award Finalists and find out who will take home top honours in each category. This is an unprecedented opportunity to celebrate your hometown leaders, support women entrepreneurs, and watch inspiring programming with your children, family and friends.

Meet the 2020 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards Finalists! >>

If you’ve previously attended the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards Gala, you’ve experienced the unparalleled magic and excitement of interacting with notable guests and connecting with the Award Finalists (past and present) after hearing their incredible stories. Many of you were looking forward to the evening again this November - and even more, have always wanted to join in the celebration, but never had the chance to attend in Toronto. This year, we have a new opportunity for all!

For the first-time ever, we’ve recreated the event celebration from the ballroom to a one-of-a-kind immersive virtual environment that is accessible to guests from across the country. Reserve your All-Access ticket to enjoy the full program of entertainment, surprise guest cameos, a curated gifting suite from the country’s top women entrepreneurs, and an interactive connecting salon where you can meet and greet with everyone else in the room.

All-Access Ticket Holders will receive a unique code to watch the Awards Gala National Broadcast live + 30 days post and be registered to attend the interactive virtual event celebration which includes a VIP invitation to the:

>> Spotlight Expo- Enjoy live entertainment & surprise cameos from our special guest line-up and explore special offers and unique experiences from program investors and Canada’s leading women entrepreneurs
>> Connecting Salon - Interact directly with notable leaders, fellow guests, past winners & 2020 finalists via chat or video in the All-Access connecting salon. Create your custom professional profile in advance to help facilitate new introductions and build your network

Food & Drink Celebration Package Experience - Enjoy before, during or after the awards!
Interactive Event Celebration - 6:15 - 7:00 pm EST
Awards Gala National Broadcast - 7:00 - 9:00 pm EST

Instead of purchasing a table in the Ballroom, this year we’re inviting all Finalists, company teams, regional supporters, and guest groups, to host a curated ‘Celebration at Home’ experience from the safety and comfort of their living - or board - room! Designed for intimate groups of 4 or 10, the Host will be able to stream their group into the live Awards Program and receive:

>> A curated celebration package delivered directly to the door including food, drink, and special gifts (details below)
>> All-Access Tickets for each member of their party
>> The opportunity to be live-streamed into the program
>> A unique code to watch the Awards Gala National Broadcast live + 30 days post

Designed to bring a taste of togetherness, even while staying apart, the ‘Celebrate at Home’ experience packages will provide a full 3-course meal for each individual in your group of 4 or 10. These kits come with all the ingredients needed to prepare an elegant meal at home. Oliver & Bonacini has done most of the prep work, but some cooking/heating and plating will be required. Detailed instructions and guidelines on how to prepare each dish will be provided. With vegan as well as gluten- and dairy-free options, there’s something for everyone in your group to enjoy.

>> Appetizer: Chicory Greens, Toasted Pumpkinseeds, Chioggia Beets, Pickled Onion & Maple Black Pepper Vinaigrette
>> Main: Rosemary Short Rib, Roasted Pearl Onions, Green Beans, Potato Purée, Red Wine Jus
>> Dessert: Chocolate Olive Oil Cake, Simmered Cherries & Red Wine Caramel
*Vegan option available for a member of your group if requested
Once your order is placed, you will be provided a form to confirm any dietary requirements or allergies in your group.
