Buffalo Niagara sits at the center of the one of the most powerful economic engines in North America- the Buffalo to Toronto mega-region. The economic opportunities associated with the geography of Buffalo Niagara were spotlighted again and again at a recent Can/Am Border Trade Alliance (BTA) conference held in Washington, DC. I was fortunate to attend and represent the Buffalo Niagara Partnership and our CanAm Council.

Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region

Did you know that the Buffalo to Toronto Mega-Region represents one of the most powerful economic engines in North America?

As Canadian and American business leaders, it is critical that we find opportunities to connect and grow not just our networks, but our businesses.

Taking advantage of cross-border opportunities

The Partnership is proud to partner with the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce to present “Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region,” a summit for business owners and leaders on April 14, 2016 at the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel.

This event serves as a tremendous opportunity for companies on both sides of the border to take advantage of our proximity to one another and leverage their businesses.

Whether managing a member referral roundtable, facilitating a mentoring program or managing a council, throughout my eight years working with the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, I have found networking and business development are critical skills that have enabled me to succeed in my role.

As the Regional Chamber of Commerce, everything we do at the Partnership is about our members.
