The Engage 2015 Conference will help students,entrepreneurs and existing companies develop innovative, globally-focused businesses. The outstanding speakers, highly interactive sessions and abundant networking opportunities over the first one and a half days will culminate in Business After Hours and ExportCamp, two events designed to deliver practical advice and face-to-face meetings with decision-makers who can help you and your company excel in a global marketplace.

Speakers will include leaders from Atlantic businesses who have succeeded in growing their sales throughout Canada, the US and around the World. They will share their experience and advice through a mix of storytelling and hands-on workshops designed to build your knowledge and skills in areas such as:

Business and export financing
Innovation and commercialization
Logistics and transportation
Cross-cultural communication
Legal and IP considerations outside Canada

The Engage 2015 Conference will conclude with two new sessions aimed at cementing those lessons you’ve learned in the first day and a half.

Business After Hours will connect those who participate in one-on-one meetings with key decision makers in areas such as Finance, Law, Transportation, Logistics and many more. Participants will have the opportunity to sign up for these meetings during the first day of the conference.

Secondly is ExportCamp, a user-programmed “unconference” which will run concurrent with Business After Hours. During the first day and a half of the Conference attendees will post topics they would like to share in group discussions. During lunch on Day 2 participants will vote on the topics they would most like to be a part of, with those getting the most votes getting assigned to a time and space to meet on the final afternoon.
