Description

We are very pleased to announce that the first speaker in our 2018 / 19 line up will be J. Robert (Bob) Black, Q.C., Executive Vice President with The Katz Group.

Bob will be taking us on the journey of Edmonton's own Rogers Place development. Learn about the history of building the arena and all the work completed after the Oilers were sold to Daryl Katz. The presentation will cover the developments of the Ice District, Phase One and Phase Two. Please join us to hear the challenges and the successes that have helped form the downtown core.
