Now that the GROW Conference is in the books, the next BIG event to hit Vancouver will be BCIC's CONNECT Conference on October 12th at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The CONNECT Conference website - www.connectnext.ca - went live last week and the list of speakers and sessions has been published. The keynote will be Lane Merrifield of fairy-tale success story Club Penguin which was born in Kelowna, BC and now calls Disney home.
