Chamber Hosting Day Long Business Forum
Prince George, B.C. – Leading into the Natural Resource Forum in Prince George on the 19th of January, the BC Chamber of Commerce and Prince George Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a special one day Business Development Forum.
“We wanted to do our best to align with an excellent event in the Natural Resource forum” says P.G. Chamber CEO Christie Ray. “We also wanted to give people an opportunity for people who are attending the Natural resources forum to maybe spend an extra day here and find some extra value with our Business Development forum.”
The one day event will focus on issues important to small and medium businesses either serving and supplying ( or hoping to ) the natural resource sector
“Our primary intent is for attendees to receive valuable take-aways” says Ray, “Information, plans process, something that they can easily implement to increase the likelihood of them getting a piece of one of the capital projects.”
Ray says there are small businesses out there that still need some guidance on how they can take advantage of the opportunities the major capital projects, such as Site C, present.
The day long forum starts at 8:30 am on the 19th, and runs through to 3:15 in the afternoon at the Coast Inn of the North.
Some of the information will not be new to those who have been following the progress of major projects, but Ray says some projects are entering new phases which opens new doors “We will have some folks who can speak on some very specific project pieces, for example, Site C now being at the point looking for sub contractors to work on the modular construction piece”.
The Chamber is also involved in the Business to Business events set for Prince George in February.
