Nourish your network and power your business through interactive and engaging events.

At the Chamber, our business is connections, and it’s at our Calgary business events that the most personal and most meaningful connections are made. Because in the digital age, there’s just no substitute for actual face time.

From government leaders and policymakers, to industry-leading CEOs and business leaders, Chamber events bring together some of the world’s brightest minds, to keep you current with the latest business trends and fresh ideas needed to overcome the challenges of running a business.

Highlights

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Following the fall 2018 economic update, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came to Calgary to discuss the economy, Canadian competitiveness, and the Trans Mountain pipeline. Speaking to a group of 500 business leaders Prime Minister Trudeau spoke to market access challenges and the state of the economy for Canada.

Small Business Week

Amazing things happen when entrepreneurs get together, and that's what Small Business Week is all about. Last year we hosted the largest Small Business Conference in Canada featuring a full-day conference with a dazzling Expo, phenomenal keynote speakers, interactive deep learning sessions, and the famous Awards Gala.

An Evening with Michelle Obama

The former First Lady of the United States came to Calgary to share her story. Speaking to her time in the White House, the current political environment and more, Mrs. Obama spoke to a sold out crowd of 2,000 people.

Inspire Series

In the fall of 2018 we highlighted three Calgary businesses who started and remain in Calgary, but have successfully grown globally competitive companies. The CEO’s of Critical Mass, Benevity, and Sunterra all spoke to business leaders and told their growth story, how they overcame challenges, and their plans to the future.
