Event description


What Is Business Without Community?

When you make the community an essential part of your business, you can build structures that will help grow and enhance your business for years to come. At the next EOCC Inc. event Building Business Bridges, we’ll discuss how to combine community and business to promote growth.

The event aims to bring together over 250 curious minds united by a passion for business and serve as a platform for sharing ideas and connecting with like-minded professionals. Attending this mixer is also an exceptional opportunity to learn from and be inspired by Edmonton’s top executives, as well as meet potential business partners or clients.

Leading to and following the 40-minute panel discussion, guests will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and the businesses working to shape and grow our city.

Our panel discussion will focus on the following topics:

  • How to combine community and business to promote growth.

  • How to leverage partnerships to ensure business development.

  • How collaboration with customers and other organizations help develop successful products and services.

  • How strategic alliances help you further your contacts, in turn allowing for growth.

  • How engaging with community stakeholders can benefit the business.

Don’t miss the opportunity to grow your business connections, listen to our insightful speakers, and enjoy complimentary tapas and drinks.

Come network with us at Muttart Conservatory on July 5, where we’ll learn and build bridges together!
