2011 Conference

Waterfronts, The Economy and Leading Change



Saint John Waterfront Development is pleased to present the 1st Annual Waterfront Conference to be held at the Trade and Convention Centre on May 12, 2011.


Join 100 plus key influencers and decision makers and get connected with current global thinking on developing Port Cities.

It takes strong, cooperative leadership to grow a Port City into a unique place where lifestyle and economics work hand-in-hand to create a future for generations to come. Although SJ Waterfront Development and SJ Port Authority seem to be in the forefront in the development of the waterfront it takes a network of City and regional leaders/influencers to make it all happen.


This Conference is designed to bring Saint John’s key leaders and influencers together with a view towards introducing an understanding of how Port Cities develop and grow. Of course, the highlight is six (6) powerful and insightful speakers/presenters that will bring information, experience and personal know-how that will challenge our thinking when it comes to big picture views.

On May 12, 2011, join some high-powered folks and get connected with the current global thinking on “Waterfronts, Economy and Leading Change” it’s all about making us and our communities better. “Never settle”.
