Conférence du Conference Board

Le Conference Board of Canada, un groupe de réflexion privé très proche de l’industrie, organise une conférence le lundi 17 et mardi 18 mars 2008 à Ottawa-Gatineau. Suivant le thème « The International Forum on the Creative Economy » l’événement tentera d’exposer les faits saillants de l’économie créative. Selon le site d’information :

With an active domestic market and increasing international exposure, Canadian creators and companies are contributing $43 billion to the economy, or 3.8 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). ‘Spin off’ economic contributions to the tourism and service industries as well as to the IT sector are generated and it is easy to see that Canada’s arts and cultural industries contribute to this country’s economy. This industry also provides much social value—as recognized in UNESCO’s Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions—by engaging citizens in sharing diverse forms of cultural expressions.

The International Forum on the Creative Economy will bring together approximately 200 national and international thinkers, leading economists and business leaders to discuss evidence on the current and future economic forces and trends impacting the innovation, creative, and knowledge-based economies.
