The February 28th, ERIEC’s 3rd Annual Conference, the 2013 Edmonton Global Talent Conference, at the Fantasyland Hotel Conference Centre was an AMAZING day!
The capacity crowd of 120 immigrant professionals and 65 business leaders, professional association representatives and people from various levels of government spent the day together, learning from and networking with each other regarding immigrant employment issues in the Finance, IT and Engineering sectors. Positive comments from participants from all the the groups represented keep pouring in:
From internationally trained professionals…
“Thanks again for such an incredible event!!! All the hard work and effort that the city and ERIEC are making to help internationally educated professionals to be successful is remarkable and for me has tremendous value.”
From Edmonton’s business leaders…
“It was a pleasure and an honour to participate. Great event – congratulations and thank you for all the support you provide to this amazing group!”
“I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for including me in the ERIEC event on Thursday; it was a wonderful experience and I really appreciated the opportunity to participate… your team put on an excellent day, and I’d be happy to participate at future events with ERIEC.”
The conference also received excellent media coverage. You can watch OMNI TV’s report that was broadcast in Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. Also, the Asian Tribune and the Press Council of Edmonton provided a TV report.
