Industry Leaders Forum

BNP-Sub-brand_Industry-Leaders-Forum
Charting the future of the Buffalo Niagara economy  

If you are a business leader in Western New York, you belong in the Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s new Industry Leaders Forum (ILF).

We’ve created an exclusive opportunity for members to come together with their peers to collaborate and strategize for the future success of their business, industry, and the overall economic vitality of the regional economy.

Beginning in January 2023, BNP will convene and facilitate highly focused forums, and communications, for local executives, decision-makers, and influencers in each of the following sectors*:

(Click your industry for details on that specific forum.)

*Dates and times for each specific industry forum will be posted as the schedule becomes available

The ILF is designed to help our members:

    • Strengthen a unified voice helping to shape the policies and regulations that impact their industries.
    • Stay updated on news and developments that impact their industries, and the regional, national, and international economies, through strategic communications.
    • Share best practices and data to help address the most pressing challenges in Buffalo Niagara.
    • Network and make new connections as businesses navigate in a post-pandemic economic environment.

More strength in numbers

When the ILF meetings have been completed, BNP will convene a Q4 2023 Economic Development Summit, including participating members from all of the industry sectors.

The combined strengths of all these local leaders set this summit apart – we are so much stronger together as we share data and discuss trends for the year ahead.

If you are not a BNP member, now is the time to join and be part of the Industry Leaders Forum.

Thank you to our sponsors
