The world economy has never been more connected. The pace of growth and productivity, driven by technological innovations, is impressive, especially as we enter the fourth industrial revolution and the Internet of Things. And the competition for market access, buyers and sellers, investment and workers has never been more fierce. [GLEF provides an opportunity for] thought-provoking discussions and intimate networking with Regional leaders in order to find new ways of harnessing the Region’s economic strengths and assets, improving the well-being of the Region’s citizens, and protecting the environment for future generations.

This year’s GLEF includes a report on the State of the Great Lakes Economy by BMO Financial Group and panel presentations on such topics as mobility, innovation, transportation, life sciences, manufacturing, tourism, water stewardship, and cross-border issues.
