Growing the North conference returns to Grande Prairie for 15th anniversary

The 15th annual Growing the North Conference is returning to Grande Prairie and will feature nearly 400 delegates from various organizations around the Peace Region.

Tanya Oliver, CEO of the Grande Prairie Chamber of Commerce, says that as part of the 15th anniversary, 15 bursaries were awarded to small businesses to celebrate. Still, she says the goal of the conference remains the same.

“The main goal of the conference is to connect people from municipalities, small businesses, organizations, and unite them under the same roof, delivering information on trends, current things that are happening,” she says.

Oliver says some of the key components of the conference are the connection it builds between small businesses and organizations in the north, and educational opportunities through the numerous keynote speakers in attendance.

“Providing the information, the fabulous keynote speakers, and lots of robust opportunities for the delegates to connect amongst each other,” she says. “Every year we hear that’s one of the most valuable things about the conference is the ability to connect face to face with so many different people across the network.”

Additionally, Oliver says the chamber is just one of ten partners putting on the conference, and she says their partnership is the building block of the conference’s success.

“We believe in that strong partnership between organizations to really show how much all the organizations are invested in Growing the North and connecting with each other.”

The conference is scheduled for February 20th to the 22nd, and interested individuals can register online.
