    Opportunity South Summit is back for 2018 with a can't-miss lineup of internationally acclaimed speakers including Janet Bannister, founder of Kijiji, and Kelly Lendsay, one of Canada's foremost innovators of Indigenous workplace inclusion, diversity and corporate engagements.

    We are also excited to welcome Robert Palmer, WestJet's Manager of Public Affairs to discuss why they've invested in the southern Alberta region, as well as Sandra Huculak of ATB, who will discuss the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility.

    Our annual regional economic development conference, focused on opportunities and innovations for South Western Alberta, is scheduled for October 2-3, 2018. This year's theme is SOUTHERN ALBERTA STRONG.

    You could WIN a flight for two anywhere WestJet Airlines flies! A draw will be made from all delegates registered to attend Opportunity South Summit, courtesy of WestJet Airlines!

    We are currently looking for event sponsors and there are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available. For more information, contact our Events Coordinator Melissa Villeneuve at 403-327-1586 or events@lethbridgechamber.com.

    We are also searching for vendors for the Business to Business Expo. This is a great opportunity to showcase your products and vision for our region.

    We are FULL for two-day vendor booths. However we are still accepting vendors for Oct. 2nd only during the Leaders of Lethbridge Mixer and tradeshow open to the public from 5-8 p.m. The cost is $100 for an 8-foot table, which does not include power nor a delegate pass for the conference.
