Business Outlook: The Future is Here

Join the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC) for Business Outlook, our annual conference offering guidance to the business community about what lies ahead.  We have engaging keynote speakers, an exclusive outlook for the region in 2016  and our industry panels will focus on how Atlantic Canadian companies are embracing  innovation and technology to bridge the productivity gap. 

As the next wave of technological change washes across the business landscape, the companies that succeed will be those that embrace change, rather than fight it.  Come hear the stories of regional companies who have taken up the challenge and are using big data analytics, nanotechnology, robotics, the Internet of Things and other technologies to compete on a global scale. Learn what you can do to advance your business and see how the use of technology can drive efficiency, improve employee engagement and expand your global reach.
