Location: Virtual Event
The business community is at a crossroads. COVID-19 brought severe economic hardship in British Columbia and around the world. As we begin to emerge from the initial wave of crisis, there will undoubtedly be profound and lasting effects on particular sectors. In addition, the impacts of the virus have accelerated technology adoption, business transformation, and other structural changes to our economy.
Our 32nd Annual Economic Outlook Forum will provide our region's business leaders with a detailed and insightful look at the road to economic recovery in the year ahead. It's the kind of practical conversation our Members expect as they review their own plans for the new year and explore the opportunities amidst uncertainty, which makes this forum one of the "must-attend" events in the 2021 business calendar.
You can choose to purchase a bundle package and attend both sessions or simply attend the session that is most relevant to you.
