Area Development and the The CAI Global Group are pleased to introduce you to Area Development�s first Canadian edition of its FDI Forum.

Consultants Forum Modeled after its US format, this event provides Canadian EDOs with an opportunity to better understand the needs of US and international investors, and gain knowledge and perspectives on current investment criteria and how it affects the site selection process. Site selectors, industry leaders and location experts will share their insights and discuss best practices in their pursuit of foreign direct investment mandates in North America, and Canada.

The conference will also launch the results of Area Development's first Canadian edition of its Consultants Survey, a tool used in the USA in determining critical factors for investment from an investor�s point-of-view. This first edition of its Canadian FDI Forum, scheduled October 30 � November 1, 2016 in Toronto, brings important site selection advisors and decision makers to Canada�s doorstep, all within the same event.


Consultants Forum Scheduled in Toronto for 2016, the Forum opens Sunday the 30th of October with an early evening Networking Reception and Dinner at the hotel. The Monday & Tuesday program include a Networking Breakfast and Lunch and a series of valuable networking breaks, where you have the opportunity to meet and talk with speakers and colleagues. On Monday evening the Forum relaxes with a Networking Reception followed by a free evening for dining in town. Following Tuesday's Closing Lunch, the conference comes to a close.
