MAPLE to Lead Delegation to Vancouver British Columbia

MAPLE is organizing a business delegation to Vancouver, British Columbia during the week of March 13-17, 2017. The purpose of our visit is to provide our delegates with a turnkey opportunity to take the pulse of one of Canada's most dynamic regions and make valuable networking connections. The delegation is open to both members and guests.

We will be meeting with leading organizations who represent the region and who will provide an overview of the overall BC/Vancouver market, where it is heading and the cross-border opportunities they are seeking. With our focus on understanding the overall business/economic landscape, our two day trip will provide valuable information to executives across sectors as well as service providers. Additionally, MAPLE will be hosting an evening reception on Thursday March 16th in downtown Vancouver to promote Southern California which will provide valuable networking opportunities with Vancouver business leaders. Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event to promote your brands.

We planned our visit to coincide with the BC Tech Summit which is the largest showcase of tech innovations in the province. MAPLE delegates can choose to attend the summit with us prior to our two-day MAPLE itinerary or travel to BC just for our program. Discounted travel through MAPLE member organization, Air Canada, will be offered.

As we finalize the details of our meeting itinerary, we want to identify organizations who are interested in joining us. If you would like more information or have any questions on the program, please contact Robert Kelle ( or Stephen Armstrong (

We look forward to sharing this special opportunity to connect Southern California and British Columbia together.
