About the @MarketPlace Conference

Breakfast & Lunch

Start the day off right, with a delicious breakfast—sure to have you firing on all cylinders! Stay with us and enjoy a fabulous lunch whilst you network and discuss your experience of the conference's morning program.


We're very pleased to have two dynamic keynote presentations from LinkedIn and TELUS. This is a perfect opportunity to hear from some of Canada's thought leaders as they invite us to explore the future, now.

Vendor Village

Our vendor village showcases local businesses with an eye to the future. From sizzling entrepreneurs to businesses who aren't shy to re-invent themselves to stay on the bleeding edge, you'll see a slice of what's happening in our region.


The @MarketPlace Conference prides itself on providing the very best networking atmosphere. Our attendees found the networking to be one of the highlights of @MarketPlace 2011. It's an excellent chance to make new connections and strengthen existing ones.

Panel Discussion

After an all-male panel at the 2011 conference, this year it's the turn of the ladies as they offer perspectives on what it takes to succeed as women in business. We have some phenomenal panelists lined-up who will inspire and broaden your horizons.


What's a conference without quality seminars from well-respected speakers? We have some great speakers lined up, and several more to announce as we get closer to the event.
