Carla Felicella, Destination Canada

Passionate, driven, and always on top of the latest trends, Carla Felicella’s creative vision fuels her 20+ year career in event production, public relations and marketing.

Early days as Director of Event Production for an award-winning destination management company laid the foundation for a career producing exceptional events for corporations, luxury brands, non-profit groups, and global think tanks, including the esteemed TEDActiveTM events in Aspen, California and Whistler, and the illustrious Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival.

After a decade directing the marketing and public relations efforts of a leading Vancouver caterer, Carla assumed the role as Global Event Strategist for Canada’s national tourism marketing agency, Destination Canada. It’s here that Carla is disrupting the “events-as-usual” business model by reimagining how to bring diverse groups of people together to engage with Canada’s tourism professionals at trade shows and customer events around the globe. Carla’s broad range of experience makes her a highly sought-after event, marketing and media relations professional, and a respected judge of the Canadian Special Events Awards.
