Hybrid Summit – We’re happy to say that in-person networking is back while virtual presentations provide maximum flexibility for everyone participating.
Online and/or In Person – Attend presentations, participate in roundtable conversations, visit exhibitors, meet one-to-one, enter contests, take polls in-person and/or online!
And, of course, the Summit will adhere to all government mandated safety protocols so that everyone choosing to participate in person can do so comfortably.
Put October 27 and 28 in your calendar and be sure to take advantage of the Early Bird rate.
Both virtual and in-person registration options include four plenary presentations, twelve concurrent sessions on a wide range of themes. From maturing the economic ecosystem to food security, and from the ‘Blue Economy’ to workplace mental health, the Summit Program Committee has pursued grassroots themes important to the ongoing transformation of our Island economy.
