About Creative Industries Symposium

Organized by the Town of Richmond Hill and Richmond Hill Small Business Enterprise Centre (SBEC), the Creative Industries Symposium is a half day conference, which explores the uniqueness of York Region's creative businesses and talent.

The Creative Industries Symposium gathers innovative minds and creative talent from employment sectors around York Region to explore the unique advantages of the Region and to identify strategies for growing and evolving local economies. The Symposium provides an opportunity for open dialogue and to create networks to develop new ideas, partnerships, and collaboration that will drive the regional creative economy.

According to the Richmond Hill's recent Economic Development Strategy, almost half of the labour force in Richmond Hill is employed in creative occupations, ranging from the arts to engineering to media. It's a fact that creative industries drive our local and regional economies.

Creative industries are comprised of individuals and companies whose primary occupation is the creation, production, and monetization of creative products. The definition represents all activities directly involved in the development and production of creative products and services. It also includes the supporting industries, which enable the production and distribution of creative content.

The Creative Industries Symposium 2015 will take place at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts on November 3, 2015. The public is invited, but registration is required at BusinessRichmondHill.ca/Symposium.

Platform for businesses and individuals to create networks & develop new partnerships.
