Each year our Annual Conference attracts experts in the field of economic development and elected officials from various parts of our Province and across North America. Last year's Conference was the most successful to date with over 400 delegates. With a new venue and new programming in 2017, we are expecting our very successful Conference to be even better.
There are several ways you can be part of this success:

Be a Conference Speaker
Each year, we look for speakers to address a variety of topics related to current economic development issues. If you have a relevant and distinctive topic that you would like to present then we would like to hear from you.
We also have a few suggestions of topics that we feel our audience might be interested in and we invite you to submit a proposal that addresses these topics as well. Please click here to see the range of topics.
