Event Description:

Our Annual Fall Dinner is one of the Chamber's most popular events, regularly attracting a high quality business audience of up to 1000 guests. They are a networker's paradise!

Join us for high-level content from leading influential speakers and entertainment, locally and from around the globe.

At this year's Fall Dinner, Malcolm Fraser, President and CEO of Innovacorp, will introduce the audience to three successful start-ups in Halifax. The conversation will focus on why entrepreneurs are choosing to make Halifax their home, what they contribute to our community and what businesses can do to support these local leaders. We'll touch on how to embrace failure and what local companies can do to be more innovative every day.
