Surrey Regional Economic Summits (2008-2014)
Each year, the Surrey Regional Economic Summit attracts more than 400 business, community and government leaders, as well as all local major media, to Surrey to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing Surrey and the Metro Vancouver region.

Past Summits have focused on issues such as the rise of Asian economies and the opportunities they present for Metro Vancouver, British Columbia and Canada, as well as the United States economy and what our region can do to make the most of the relationship with our largest trading partner. From 2008 to 2014, the Summit also featured a live on-site broadcast of CKNW’s Bill Good Show, featuring most the Summit’s speakers.

For the eighth year in a row, Pace Group will be the Project Manager for the event, responsible for a wide range of event management, media relations, writing and sponsorship services.
