EconoUs Details

"Vida Events was a valued partner in hosting EconoUs2017 in Calgary. Their dedicated team brought innovative ideas to the design of EconoUs2017 that incorporated multiple venues, walking tours, the arts, zero waste and local food. Vida Events went above and beyond to ensure a positive and welcoming experience for attendees. Their attention to detail and amazing ‘show-flow’ insured the local host-team made up of 1 national and 6 local hosts were able to showcase the best of Calgary’s local economy to a national audience of 395 community leaders!"

September 13th - 15th 2017 (Calgary, AB)

EconoUs is a national conference focused on community economic development. The 2017 theme of “an economy that works for all” began with planning an event focused on zero-waste, inclusion, reconciliation, and the local economy. It was then experienced by over 380 delegates and visionaries from across Canada through three days of local tours, interaction with local vendors and artists, collaborative plenaries, and 30+ campus-style workshops.

Vida Events congratulates the planning partners: CCEDNet, Thrive, Momentum, Calgary Economic Development, Calgary Regional Partnership, REAP, and Mount Royal University, as well as the numerous community leaders, entrepreneurs, and sponsors for bringing this inspirational vision to life!
