Event Description:
Back by popular demand from last year’s NABOC!  The 2017 Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce Building the Future forum brings together local community, business and industry leaders to discuss sustainability, community resilience and business readiness over three panel sessions.  The sessions will provide tips, insights and opinions from the panel on responsible development, and how the community can benefit from proposed future development in the region.  This year’s event will also feature international speakers bringing a world of experience to the discussion. The forum panels are free for NABOC delegates and open to the general public with tickets purchased through the Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce for $25 for non-conference delegates.
