AEG Presents: Canada Connects – Nevada

The Alberta Enterprise Group is excited to present Canada Connects: Nevada – February 14-17, 2018.

This three-day mission will connect Alberta business delegates with Nevada business leaders, policy makers, and investors for a comprehensive program of high-level discussions, speeches, tours, and trade and investment forums.

Nevada, not unlike Alberta in recent years, faced enormous challenges in diversifying its economy after the Great Recession of 2008. Since then, however, Nevada has created more than 140,000 new jobs and attracted nearly 7,000 private firms from out of state. Further, it has established itself as a hub for innovation and investment in everything from renewable energy and advanced manufacturing to unmanned autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and data ecosystems.

Don’t miss this high-value program that offers a unique combination of business, networking, and recreational opportunities with your fellow Alberta business leaders!

There is limited space, so book now!
