The BC Economic Development Association will conduct a virtual economic summit in the spring.

The intention is to chart a path of economic revival for B.C. communities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The summit’s theme will be “Economic Revival: Charting a Path Forward for BC Communities.”

The online summit will take place between March 8-11, and the BCEDA has already tagged Peter Kageyama as one of its keynote speakers for the event. Kageyama is an internationally renowned community development consultant.

The BCEDA is also putting out the call for session proposals “to ensure a comprehensive program” at the economic summit.

“This is an opportunity to highlight success stories, lessons learned, share cutting-edge ideas, and engage your colleagues at the premier event for economic development practitioners in British Columbia,” BCEDA wrote in its press release. “The annual BC Economic Summit attracts over 200 local, regional, Indigenous, national and international experts in the field of economic development and elected officials from various parts of our province.”
