It is, indeed, an honor to welcome you all to the 2015 edition of our Placentia Bay Industrial Showcase.
The Placentia Area Chamber of Commerce, along with the PBIS organizing committee, has done a stellar job of bringing together the many businesses and other stakeholders who have a keen interest in the great projects taking place in Placentia Bay. Our conference and exhibition has become an integral event in the province, helping in the building of relationships and creating synergies. While promoting the growth of local business, PBIS also aids various companies involved in major projects to discover and develop necessary skills, and encourages the expansion of services that are available to the region and to the province as a whole.
Our agenda is once again jam-packed with exciting updates on various projects and a multitude of professional presenters and guest speakers. Thanks to our many sponsors, advertisers, delegates, exhibitors, and speakers for making PBIS 2015 one of our best events ever.
On behalf of the board of directors, I want to acknowledge the organizing committee and especially the Chair, Chris Newhook, for making this a successful event. Our staff, led by Gene Collins, Executive Director, and Winnie Barry, deserves a special thank-you for their hard work.
Finally, we wish to thank our partners and our many Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsors for their generous support.
