Each year, Calgary Economic Development’s signature event, Economic Outlook, traditionally brings together over 1,500 business, government and community leaders to network and to hear about future economic trends and forecasts for our city, province and nation.

With 2020 presenting challenges in physically gathering together, we’ve reimagined how to bring this unique event to our community. We are thrilled to be hosting a virtual Economic Outlook event this fall, the first of its kind, and it promises to deliver as the not-to-be-missed business event of the year.

Join us online on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as we welcome speakers Todd Hirsch, Vice President & Chief Economist, ATB Financial, and Pierre Cléroux, Vice President, Research and Chief Economist, Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), to give us their insights for future business planning.

Supporting Our Local Community

The global COVID-19 pandemic has put an unprecedented stress on our community and as a result, many of our local support organizations have seen an increased demand for their services. That’s why this year, Calgary Economic Development will donate all net proceeds from Economic Outlook to two charities – the Calgary Region’s Canadian Mental Health Association and the Calgary Food Bank.
