Innovation - Ontario Grand Valley Regional Conference
February 2, 2018
Cambridge Hotel & Conference Centre


Our Call for Speakers is now Open

The success of Innovation is solely dependent on the calibre of its speakers and panel members.

Are you considered an expert in your field and wish to share some of your experience with us?

Have you been involved in a Supply Chain or Operations Management implementation and survived to talk about it? Would you consider telling us about your successes and challenges?

Are you a senior executive who would be willing to participate in one of our Panels of Experts?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then we'd like to hear from you!

Our Call for Speakers is now open. Submit your presentation topics for review by November 15, 2017. We will notify you of our final selection by November 30.
