CIRI's 29th Annual Conference, June 12 - 14, 2016

360° of IR: Creating Value for the Long Term
Fairmont le Château Frontenac
Québec City

The IR profession takes place in a constantly evolving environment. This is why your participation in CIRI’s Annual Investor Relations Conference is the premiere opportunity of the year to build your network and exchange with fellow IROs, while having the ability to share knowledge, best practices and ideas. This leading professional development event is critical to advancing the IR profession and enabling its growth as a core role at the heart of every public organization.

With that in mind, CIRI’s 29th Annual Investor Relations Conference program has been developed by a committee of IROs from across Canada. This year’s theme “360° of IR: Creating Value for the Long Term” is reflective of the strategic role that you play in representing your companies, shaping the messaging and visuals to convey your story in an effective manner and building trust against a backdrop of challenging markets and cyclical industries.

The program covers a wide array of topics that are relevant in your role, regardless of your level of experience and years in the industry. This year, you will have the opportunity to hear from keynote speakers
Myron Stadnyk, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARC Resources Inc., Richard Yamarone, Bloomberg Intelligence Economist and J. Royden Ward, Chief Analyst and Founder at Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor. You will also hear from Board members, fund managers, research analysts, equity traders, governance and legal specialists as well as fellow IROs from a broad range of industries.

From the boardroom to the markets, the topics covered over three days of programming will provide a 360° view of the various elements that you tackle on a daily basis, such as effective engagement with your stakeholders – internal and external; market dynamics; the current economic climate; roadshows; investor presentations; as well as regulatory and disclosure requirements.

Beyond the conference program and its majestic venue, the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, we have organized a number of optional activities to enrich your experience as you and your peers embrace the historic charm of Québec City. Network with colleagues while you golf at Le Grand Portneuf Golf course, wander through old Québec on a culinary tour or explore the natural beauty of La Belle Province while on a hike through Jacques Cartier National Park.

Consider this your opportunity to broaden your horizon by hearing and sharing stories with those who are at the heart of it all so that we can create more value for our organizations for the long term.
