Upcoming event provides economic forecast for business

February 5, 2018 by  

The Regional Economic Summit is taking place next month in Guelph. The event is a presentation of the Guelph Chamber of Commerce.

The summit is set to provide information on the state of the economy and how businesses are expected to thrive in the region over the next 20 years.

The keynote speaker for the summit will be Toronto Mayor John Tory, who will give an overview of the region. He will be followed by a regional leadership panel moderated by Tyler Sutton, editor of the Public Sector Digest. Other panelists will include Dr. Frank Vaccarino from the University of Guelph, Guelph Mayor Cam Guthrie, Dr. John Tibbets of Conestoga College, and Dennis Lever, the Warden of Wellington County.

The summit will include a luncheon and afternoon snacks. There will no doubt be plenty of opportunities for networking among the business leaders in attendance. It is likely that the majority of those who are planning to attend will be bringing their premium business cards obtained from their favorite Guelph printing company.

The Regional Economic Summit will be held at the Frank Hasenfratz Centre of Excellence in Marketing on March 22 from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Tickets are $85 for Guelph Chamber of Commerce members and $100 for nonmembers. To find out more, contact Amanda Derkson at 519-822-8081 x223.
