High quality industry conferences are offered during two morning sessions. The multitude of activities also includes the luncheon with keynote speaker, Jacques Demers, Stanley Cup winning NHL coach and Canadian senator, contact sessions with overseas traders, company presentations and Cocktail Reception.
