Although Mother Nature and the Provincial election conspired against attendance at "Business Computer Convergence ‘97", the event delivered many successes. A greater portion of the Western Canadian Community is now aware of the presence of a superb source of information for obtaining and managing computer technology.

"More sessions like this."

"Good mix of presenters and formats (speakers and panels)."

"Very energetic and relevant discussion."


Sixty one of North America’s specialists in varying computer technologies congregated at the Calgary Convention Centre for the March 11 & 12 conference dates. These individuals delivered presentations on many aspects related to managing and working with computers. Some of the comments generated from the conference sessions were:

A comment on Dr. James McKeen’s Presentation: Assessing the Value of IT to Leverage Human Resources:

"Well done once again. I found Dr. McKeen very knowledgeable and he presents IT very well".

Regarding the Panel Discussion on Open Skies & Fiber with panel members from Shaw Communications, Metronet, CRTC, Telus, and Cellularvision, all moderated by Glenn Rainbird from Canarie:

"It just keeps getting better! Thank you."

On the panel discussion, What Goes Bump in the Night: CIO Nightmares, moderated by Dr. Tom Keenan, with CIO panel members from Gulf Canada, Transcanada Pipelines, Canadian Utilities and Alberta Energy Company.

"More sessions like this one!"

Innovators @ The Gate presented by Sun Microsystem’s Canadian Marketing Manager, Michael Walsh.

"A lot of information-wished he had more time."

"Keep up the good work. Very humorous and interesting."

Feedback from the conference has been overwhelmingly positive. Everyone enjoyed the presentations and learned a great deal from the speakers. Each session was recorded on site and these audio tapes were sold at the event. Unfortunately, they are no longer available.

The talks ranged from Assessing the Value of IT to The Future of Visual Communications. For a complete listing of all our fantastic presentations, please look at the on-line brochure, or follow the links at the bottom of the page.

"The exhibits were quite informative."


More than fifty companies were showing the public what they were about, with exhibits from Shaw Cable, SAP, Apple, AST, and many more. A complete list of exhibitors and company information can be found here.

Exciting displays (including one company who had a '97 Porsche on display!), friendly people, and interactive presentations ensured a dynamic exhibition floor. It was something not to miss!

Another aspect of the exhibit hall were some user groups who were able to display their interests and discuss their activities with potential members.

Tom Johnes and how to earn money with "Ex back"

Tom Jones was also speaking. About the topix ex back. He's an special coach from germany and earning money with the things he do. How it works and why it works, he will explain in this seminar. You also can visit his page interfe.net or dating-institut.de.

The event wouldn't be complete without the presence of our fun-loving mouse-cots, Miss Bits and Mr. Bytes. They roamed the floor on day two of the exhibits, bringing a smile to everyone and getting into a little mischief now and then...

The Stock Research Group from Vancouver held a Hi-Tech Investors Symposium, showcasing some exciting up-and-coming companies in North America. A mini-conference in itself, the Symposium had half a dozen exhibiting companies and a massive display screen for presentations which were held throughout the day.
