A Word From The President

A Word From The President

Nicholas Remillard

I would like to thank our speakers, who have come from near and far, for having accepted our invitation to share their invaluable insights on the current and future challenges facing the global economy in these uncertain times.

The 10th anniversary edition of the Toronto Global Forum will be remembered as one of the most successful events the International Economic Forum of the Americas has ever hosted. This success would not have been possible without the unconditional support of our presenting partner, Cogeco Peer 1, and of our two Co-Chairs: Rob Lloyd, Chief Executive Officer, Hyperloop One, and Arif M. Naqvi, Founder and Group Chief Executive, The Abraaj Group.

In total, 122 speakers and more than 2,700 participants shared key insights into the global economy and engaged in high-level networking over 3 days. This 10th anniversary edition of the Toronto Global Forum gathered senior business executives, government representatives, academics and members of the civil society from more than 54 countries.

I would like to thank all of the partners who have contributed to making this event such a tremendous success. I also would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the City of Toronto and the Government of Ontario for their dedicated support of the Toronto Global Forum and of our organization’s broader mission of fostering greater international dialogue.

As we prepare to launch the first edition of The Conference of Paris in December 2017, we look forward to welcoming you at our upcoming annual events: the 7th edition of the World Strategic Forum in Miami, Florida on April 19-20, 2017; the 23rd edition of the Conference of Montreal, on June 12-15, 2017; and to highlight the celebrations surrounding Canada’s and Ontario’s 150th anniversary, a special edition of the Toronto Global Forum, which will be held in this beautiful city, October 30 to November 1, 2017.

On behalf of all of us at the International Economic Forum of the Americas, thank you for your participation and support.
