What is the Mega-Region?
Our region is within 500 miles of 41% of the US population and 59% of the Canadian population. The opportunity for you to grow your business right across the border is tremendous – make that mega-tremendous! From the Buffalo Niagara region to Toronto and beyond – that’s what we are calling the Mega-Region with mega-potential for companies in the US and Canada.
Keynote Speaker – Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region will feature inspirational keynote speaker Nadja Piatka, President & CEO of Nadja Foods, who built her food business on cross-border opportunities. Her products are sold in the US and Canada, through retailers such as Starbucks and McDonald’s and her presentation is sure to get you thinking about cross-border opportunities.
Business Connections – The afternoon event will also feature facilitated Table Talk discussions on cross-border growth, with companies matched at each table with those looking to do business together.
Hard Facts and Data – Live polling throughout the event will create content for creation of a white paper with hard facts and data to assist companies in tapping into the power of the Mega-Region.
Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region will include addresses by Dottie Gallagher-Cohen, President & CEO, Buffalo Niagara Partnership Mishka Balsom, President and CEO of the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce; Keanin Loomis, President and CEO of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce; and Audrey Oswell, Chief Operating Officer of Seneca Gaming Corporation, the title sponsor of the summit.
