Dear friends and colleagues,

During this challenging time, the health and well-being of our colleagues around the globe are our primary concerns. As such, at the direction of health authorities at the Government of Canada and Province of British Columbia, we have resolved to postpone the 2020 World Forum for FDI. The Forum will move forward in Vancouver, British Columbia, as originally planned, at a date to be confirmed. All confirmed delegates will have their registrations transferred to the new dates, once confirmed, and we will remain in close communication regarding the new dates and any other relevant details.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out to your dedicated rep at Conway, or to me, at any time.

As part of our continuing commitment to support you, Conway will deliver several webinars in the coming weeks dedicated to FDI and economic development during and after the current global crises. Please subscribe to Conway’s LinkedIn for updates on additional webinars in this series.

Conway is also ready to assist you, your organization and region with our full suite of FDI services such as Custom Training, Lead Generation, Analytics, Strategy and Advisory, Events, Marketing and Site Selection Magazine.
