with Jillian Harris & Team Jilly
We’ve partnered with the incredible team at Snuggle Bugz to bring you a comfortable, private space within our venue for our ambitious, breastfeeding moms to pump! While this is a 19+ event, we understand that there will be a number of moms leaving their little ones at home, so we want to be able to accommodate your pumping schedule! There will be comfortable chairs, lactation cookies, storage bags, a refrigerator for milk storage and more for you to pump in peace — so you can enjoy a day of learning, networking and professional growth!
Cheers to You!
It wouldn’t be an Atelier event without WINE – and wow, are you in for a treat! We are so thrilled to once again have Ravine Vineyard on board as our exclusive wine partner, providing award-winning VQA red, white and rosé during Happy Hour! Have a glass (or two) of wine while networking with fellow #bossladies in the gorgeous Koerner Gardens of Evergreen Brickworks.
We also have our friends over at Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers creating handcrafted signature drinks for all of our attendees! A refreshing touch of summer in a glass, Dillon’s does not disappoint with their mouth-watering cocktails. Locally-sourced and nationally adored, this too will enhance your Happy Hour experience!
Sip, Savour and Shop!
Upon registration, our catering partners at Oliver and Bonacini are ready to kick-start your day with a selection of gourmet breakfast items and a variety of fresh juice. O&B will also be providing your delicious and healthy lunch, where you will have a choice of vegan, vegetarian, or non-vegetarian entrees.
Did someone say COFFEE?! We are happy to say that we will have coffee and unique latte stations ready to provide you with your fuel throughout the day because behind every successful woman there is a substantial amount of coffee!
We are keen on keeping the energy high from morning until evening, and with that comes energizing snack breaks to power you in between speakers. We have carefully selected brand partners to work with and provide you with treats and tasty bites throughout the day.
This year, we’ve amped up our shopping experience, with a meticulously curated Pop-Up Market, featuring some of Canada’s most celebrated brands and female-led small businesses. Grab a coffee and meander through the exciting selection of fashion, accessory, and home décor brands!
Our incredible Beauty Bar partners, Fancy Face, Alterna and Carter Beauty, will be taking care of your every beauty whim for this very special experience at The Atelier.
