GroYourBiz Institute for Global Connections Association (NFP British Columbia), has been closely monitoring the public health situation as it relates to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and in keeping with the guidelines put forward by the Provincial and Federal governments, we have taken the decision to the postponement of  EXCELerate 2020: GroYourBiz with the Speed of Collaboration Conference.

The good news is that the conference will still take place at the Pan Pacific, with new dates of April 21-23, 2021 providing we remain in compliance with the Provincial and Federal Government guidelines at that time.

I know this may be disappointing news, as many of us were looking forward to connecting in May 2020, but the health of our community is our top priority and we feel a postponement is the most prudent way to address the public health concern, while at the same time honouring our ongoing commitment to the  economic empowerment of women business owners in providing a unique forum in which to share resources and ideas.

We are committed to do our part to help “flatten the curve” and in the spirit of resilience, we will work together in collaboration with all our networks, government, business, and community partners to help people through this difficult time.

We will be updating the website in the next couple of weeks. For our sponsors, speakers and delegates we will be communicating with you on an on-going basis.

Thank-you for your support and understanding, and we look forward to seeing you in April 2021!

In the meantime…#togetherathome #togetherstrong
