Conferences

A series of five larger conferences are held on an annual basis organized by YSBEC in partnership with the local northern six municipal Economic Development offices and Chambers of Commerce. These conferences focus on entrepreneurship, small and medium business, and business development. YSBEC separates their annual series with three “E-Business”, one “Women in Business”, and one “Bridges for Better Business” events.

E-Business events are designed to support York Region’s small and midsized businesses to help improve operational efficiencies through the use of e-business solutions and to encourage expanded market reach through the use of internet technologies.

Women in Business events are in support of Ontario Women entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses to commemorate International Women’s Day which occurs on and or near March 8th.

Bridges for Better Business events support York Region’s established and new small businesses and entrepreneurs. Bridges typically include a keynote speaker, break out sessions, and a trade show component.
