A core pillar of the event is engagement with The First Nations of Canada.

Leaders from First Nations communities play a central role in the preparation and creation of the conference and exhibition, be that as members of the Governing Body or through strategic event partnerships.

This ensures that not only do First Nations speakers participate in the conference as keynote speakers, chairman and panellists, but also that attendance from First Nations communities is strong throughout the event.

Chief Councillors wishing to attend the event will be entitled to a complimentary VIP pass. For more information please contact the team
