A Brilliant Reply from the Canadian National Exhibition CNE 2006

This is a follow-up of the letter sent to J. the Corporate/Group Sales Administrator at the Canadian National Exhibition, CNE 2006.

J. replied back in wonderful style and even created a code for SmartCanucks.ca and deals fans: SC2006CNE. Thanks J. for clarifying everything and I apologize if I took your request a bit seriously 🙂

Here is her reply:

Hi Boo Radley,

I apologize for any confusion caused by me writing to you from my sympatico e-mail address, I was (am) writing from home. I have cc’ed my work e-mail address on this message and the original, so please feel free to contact me via my work e-mail.

A code for SmartCanucks.ca users is a good idea. I have set up an online account for you so please post this URL on your site in place of the other codes in order to give your readers access to the discount:


Alternately, your readers may access the discount by visiting the CNE website, www.theex.com, clicking on ‘Buy Tickets Online’ and then on ‘Corporate/Group Partners’. This will take them to a page where they can enter the code SC2006CNE.

There was no specific problem with you using the CNE logo, I only thought it would not make much sense being on the site if you removed the offer. Now that the offer will be available through your own code, I see no reason why you cannot use it to promote the offer.

The CNE enters into promotional agreements with several outlets, so if you have any additional ideas for the future, please contact us in the spring and we will be happy to work with you.

    That’s pretty awesome. This definitely has made the CNE an option for places to go next year. As I have never actually been before.

    This is an added incentive. Great! 🙂

    GREAT!!! I’ve never been there and wanted to go, but the letter from then had turned me off. Now I’m impressed by their professionalism and how they handles this. Cheers to the CNE!

    good for you Boo!! I cant believe they actually created a code just for this site! At least they’ve rectified the situation and put themselves into a positive light!

  12. tattoodprincess says:

    will this code still work this year? or was it just for 06?
