2019 FDI Forum Feedback

“I thought the array of speakers were excellent and very useful for anyone in the FDI business. I particularly thought the talent/labor sessions were powerful. Finally, well organized and run. A first-class event.”
Edmonton Global (sponsor)

Excellent content and speakers. Great venue. Overall very satisfied and would do it again.
Brampton Economic Development Office, Ontario (sponsor)

This was my second participation. I really enjoyed the "forward" looking and technology focus of the conference.
Sherbrooke Innopole, Quebec

Great conference. Love how accessible the speakers are and that they stick around for the entire event. I think that is a major competitive advantage for the Canadian FDI Forum.
City of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta (sponsor)
