Niagara Economic Summit 2019 @ White Oaks Conference Resort
Nov 1 @ 7:30 am – 2:30 pm
Vibrant Economy, Vibrant Community The Niagara Economic Summit brings us together to celebrate shared successes, strategize the way forward for our regional economy, and increase collaboration. Tomorrow’s Workforce About a third of future jobs don’t exist today. What will the workforce of tomorrow have to deal with, and how will we prepare them for an unknown future? Liveable Communities – Urban Design True prosperity requires a community where all can thrive. Niagara must not only be a good place to do business, but a good place to live, no matter your background or your wealth Gamechangers Gamechangers can be loud and famous, or they can quietly change an entire industry or an economy behind the scenes. What are those gamechangers, and what do they mean for the businesses of today and tomorrow? This event is hosted by the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce.
