Each year, The Vancouver Board of Trade’s Economic Outlook Forum has been a barometer for business conditions in British Columbia. It provides business owners and executives with a chance to learn about the coming year’s obstacles and opportunities from leading analysts, economists, and political leaders.
Expert speakers and panelists have included: Doug Porter, Chief Economist for BMO Capital Markets; Minister of Finance Michael de Jong; Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training Pat Bell; David Podmore, Chairman and CEO, Concert Properties; Tamara Vrooman, CEO, Vancity Credit Union; Sue Paish, CEO, LifeLabs; and Wynne Powell, President and CEO, London Drugs.
Pace Group provides The Vancouver Board of Trade with a wide range of communications and event management services that include pre-planning, speaker coordination, budget management, event scripting, décor, audio/visual services, event staffing, stage management, media relations and venue coordination.
The Economic Outlook Forums have proven to be very successful with more than 300 business, economic and political leaders, and media, attending the events in 2013 and 2014.
