Major projects are a key force propelling Atlantic Canada's economy forward. Capitalizing on this wave of major projects investment is essential to growing your business, and Major Projects 2018 provides the perspective you need to profit from these opportunities.

Along with the APEC analysis (see a sample here) we have a great speaker lineup including;

The conference has become a “must attend” event for business leaders seeking a competitive edge when it comes to planning, forecasting and project leads.  It also includes the opportunity to network with developers, financiers, oil and gas executives, lawyers, accountants and multiple leaders from the construction trades.  

A special focus for this year’s event will be Technology and Innovation in Major Projects. The adoption of new technologies such as business information modelling, advanced analytics, 3-D printing, sensor technology and automation are improving the productivity of capital investment projects and creating new opportunities for growth.   Local companies are developing solutions that are transforming the way companies operate.

May 28, 2018 - Halifax, Nova Scotia -- Pier 21   
May 30, 2018 - St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador - Delta St. John's
