About the Alberta Economic Development Leaders' Summit and Conference
Online May 19-20, 2021
Challenges and opportunities for local and regional economies in 2021 are very different than those we encountered in the past; therefore, using the same strategies simply won’t work.
With a greatly enhanced level of global, political and economic uncertainty and complexity, coupled with game-changing events like the COVID-19 pandemic, our world is changing almost beyond recognition.
This new reality requires us to reimagine, reinvent and reposition mindsets, political and economic structures, business models, products and services.
The Alberta Economic Development Leaders’ Summit & Conference will attract over 300 local, national, and international experts in the field of economic development, and elected officials from across the province.
Delegates will be provided with information about Alberta’s current and emerging sector opportunities, updates on economic development issues and trends, best practices, inspiring keynote addresses, and interactive virtual networking opportunities.
By incorporating EDA’s Economic Development Leaders’ Summit into the conference, we will create a forum for Alberta’s economic development leaders to talk about what is happening in our province; identify practical ways to move our economy forward; and support each other in moving Alberta’s ambitious economic development agenda forward.
