CIRI's 30st Annual Conference, June 11 - 13, 2017

Brilliant IR: Bringing Clarity and Value to Investor Relations
Delta Grand Okanagan Resort
Kelowna, B.C.

2017 marks an important milestone in the history of CIRI as we celebrate our 30th Annual Conference in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia. This year's theme, Brilliant IR: Bringing Clarity and Value to Investor Relations, not only recognizes the event's diamond anniversary, but the core of what our profession brings to investors and the companies we represent.

The political and economic environment, over the past year, has arguably been one of the most uncertain and unpredictable we've ever seen. Market volatility and increasing pressure on fund managers to demonstrate the value of active management has placed greater emphasis on the role of IROs and their ability to deliver an effective IR program. Understanding  the diverse needs of your shareholder base, the role of technology in the flow and delivery of information and the emergence of new trends in regulation, governance and trading has increased the complexity of the investor relations function.

This year's Conference has been designed to provide you with the knowledge, tools and network to excel as an IRO in the changing landscape of investor relations. You'll gain valuable insights on the latest economic trends from Chris Lawless, Chief Economist at British Columbia Investment Management Corporation, C-Suite perspectives on the value of investor relations from Randy Smallwood, CEO of Wheaton Precious Metals, and motivational speaker Mary-Jo Dionne will pull back the curtain on how individuals can tap into their own unique source of brilliance to feel radiant as individuals and professionals. You will also hear about how the latest capital market trends are impacting the trading of your stock, how technology and social media are changing the way we communicate with investors, how the increasing importance of ESG affects investment decisions and how to bring greater clarity in your messaging to investors.

In addition to a great line up of speakers and sessions, we hope you enjoy CIRI's Grape Stomp and Wine & Dine on Monday evening. This interactive grape-stomping event has been designed to challenge and motivate you to build and strengthen your IR network.
