EVENTS

We're starting the summer with an event that's all about you!
 
Through our Tech West Canada initiative we have been at the forefront of creating avenues for tech companies to #GoGlobal by connecting them to global markets. 
We're hosting a series of discussions, and we want to hear from you (all the tech and tech-enabled companies interested in global growth) !

Trade is the heart of the global digital economy and, as the province gets ready to roll out the economic strategy plan, your contribution is vital to designing the future of trade in Manitoba.
