2016 MRIA Research Excellence Gala Awards Dinner

Queen Elizabeth Fairmont Ballroom

The Awards Dinner is a key social event of the MRIA Annual Conference. It gives the Association the opportunity to recognize some of the amazing research that our members are performing in industry. Starting with a champagne reception in the conference foyer, the Gala will include an amazing three course plated meal with wine while the awards winners are announced. After dinner, stay and dance the night away or get your picture taken at the MRIA Photo Booth. MRIA would like to thank its Pinnacle Sponsors Asking Canadians and Ipsos for making Gala possible. A special thank you also goes out to our official 2016 Excellence Awards Sponsor Leger.
