What: The second installment of the 4Front Atlantic Conference

When: Friday, May 25th, 2012

Where: The World Trade and Convention Centre, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Media are invited to join Atlantic Canadian business and thought leaders in a critical discussion on how Atlantic Canadians can succeed in a challenging global economy.

The 4Front Atlantic Conference, hosted by BMO Financial tglenenGroup and McInnes Cooper, builds upon the inaugural conference held on October 7, 2011. Last year's conference focused on the question of "why", and looked at the risks and opportunities for Atlantic Canada as a result of transformational global changes in the region's economy. This year, top business leaders will discuss and identify "what" needs to happen for businesses in Atlantic Canada to proactively reshape themselves and to reach their potential rather than risk being reactively reshaped by global trends.

Among the Speakers

Keynote speakers are Elyse Allan, President & CEO, GE Canada and Mike Lazaridis, Co‐Founder & Vice‐Chair, Research in Motion.
