The Business Transitions Forum is one of four conference brands owned and operated by Cube Business Media. Co-founders, Mark Stephenson and Dave Tyldesley, not only have over 20+ years’ experience in the conference and exposition space, but their previous company, was acquired - twice, while they were still involved. Their industry expertise, along with their transition expertise, is what inspired the Business Transitions Forum. Now a multi-city event, the forums take place in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto and Halifax. Our vision is to generate connections, build content and create communities, through physical hubs where people can meet face-to-face. Our mission is to bring buyers and sellers together, strengthen ecosystems and create marketplaces where entrepreneurs thrive.
