Why I'm a Member

Yves Maisonneuve

Since 1995, Simmons Canada is proud to support Hospitality NL. It is a great tool for an outside organization to be in contact and to be able to support the tourism industry. At the same time, it is that same industry that has supported Simmons for so many years. It is a WIN-WIN association. Great to be a part of HNL!
