The British Columbia Economic Development Association (BCEDA) is presenting its 2022 Annual BC Economic Summit in a virtual format from April 3rd to 5th, 2022 (tentative).   This is an opportunity to highlight success stories, lessons learned, share cutting-edge ideas, and engage your colleagues at the premier event for economic development practitioners in British Columbia.  The annual BC Economic Summit attracts over 200 local, regional, Indigenous, national and international experts in the field of economic development and elected officials from various parts of our province.  The 2022 Summit theme is Reconciliation and Resiliency - A Future for BC.

With the uncertainty around public health restrictions, we are planning a virtual Summit.  The program will be delivered over two and a half days utilizing a comprehensive interactive virtual event platform to enhance your Summit experience. 

We will have a great lineup of speakers from leading economic development experts and peers, a program that will include many panel discussions and interactive discussion forums as well as exhibits, BC Economic Development Awards and virtual networking opportunities.  

The BCEDA is BC’s largest membership organization serving the economic development profession. From public to private, rural to urban and local to international, our members represent the entire range of economic development experiences.
