The IR Magazine Forum – Canada took place on April 1, 2021, and gave Canadian IR professionals practical, take away ideas to implement into their IR program.
In 2020, attendees joined us virtually to take a refreshing look at running an IR program in the new normal. This year, we heard the latest advice on targeting, including how to respond to the changing nature of the traditional sell-side, how to engage with ETFs and new day traders, and the future for roadshows.
As well as this, buy-side, sell side and issuing companies shared advice on post-pandemic strategies, creative best practice, ESG reporting, and the use of new technologies. Check out our star speakers for 2021 below!
Due to current restrictions, the event took place as a virtual experience using our bespoke, cutting-edge technology.
Our virtual event platform closely replicates attending in-person by facilitating interaction with speakers, one-to-one networking with fellow IR professionals, and group roundtable discussions. Going virtual helps you connect with a wider network from the comfort of your desk.
All times displayed are in Eastern Time (ET)
