Being held at the new Clarence-Rockland Arena, next to the Canadian International Hockey Academy, the Summit will provide the opportunity to tackle various sensitive economic themes, including:

  • Rural economic development
  • Promising economic sectors
  • Agri-food industry challenges
  • Best practices and diversity of business models
  • The opportunities that conceal the demographic movement
  • The added value of social enterprises
  • Networking and added value partnerships
  • Entrepreneurial succession planning initiatives

The organizing committee expects to greet 300 guests during this three-day event.  Simultaneously, the event will host a public exhibitor for organizations who will be able to showcase their products and services.  Furthermore, one of the Summit’s beacon will be Groupe Convex’ 10th anniversary Banquet Event, celebrating the success of this social enterprises’ venture which has raised, through the years, international acclaim.
