Conference to focus on gaining competitive advantage to sustain economic growth 

NASHVILLE—The 9th Annual Southeast US-Canadian Provinces (SEUS) Conference will be held May 26-28, 2016 at the Omni Hotel in downtown Nashville. The conference theme is “Gaining Competitive Advantage to Sustain Economic Growth” and will focus on IT in three sectors: transportation, entertainment and healthcare.

“I am excited that the SEUS-CP conference is being held in Nashville this year,” TNECD Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “There are over 73 Canadian companies located in Tennessee and we are grateful to have such a strong partnership with Canada. I look forward to attending SEUS-CP and growing our relationship with Canada.”

The two-day conference will focus on business-to-business meetings as well as meetings for commissioners and ministers of economics and commerce from both nations. The bulk of attendees are small-and-medium sized companies. An expert team tailors the meetings and conversations to something each attendee would find of interest. More than 650 meetings traditionally occur between more than 100 delegates in less than two days. The B2B meetings run from noon on Thursday through the afternoon on Friday.
