Growing the North brings opportunity for networking

The 8th Annual Growing the North conference goes next week. Master of Ceremonies for the event Tom Pura says on top of providing information about many industries, it is an opportunity for networking.

“There are several networking opportunities during the conferences. There is anything from the 15 minute coffee breaks to the networking event after the first day of speaking. It is an opportunity to get to know each other a little better and maybe make some important connections.”

He says the networking all begins at the Taste of the Peace on the Tuesday at the Stonebridge Hotel.

During the Wednesday and Thursday, presentations will focus on industry like forestry and the oil and gas industry. Chamber of Commerce President Dan Pearcy says the conference is for entrepreneurs and people interested in learning more about the economy.

“The basic idea of the conference is to bring in speakers to speak at a high level on economic development issues. We want to try and help our business leaders have an understanding of what is going on in the world.”

A full list of the presenters can be found on the Growing the North website. The event runs February 22nd and 23rd with registration open until the event.
