EDA is pleased to report the 2017 Annual Conference was an overwhelming success with over 400 delegates, 30 partners and over 80 speakers and moderators.  

With the stunning Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, we would like to thank the The Banff Centre, the venue for this year's event. Along with it's "Conference Connectors" workshops, the Banff Centre offered many value added services. 

Moving forward conference delegates can continue to expect relevant and engaging sessions and speakers, and continued creative and innovative thinking with our Conference planning.
