Spruce Grove is working with Edmonton Global on the first ever forward/slash Summit.

On September 28, 2022, Edmonton Global will host the inaugural forward/slash Summit, that will bring together regional leaders from across the Edmonton Metropolitan Region to purposefully, proactively, and inclusively build towards a thriving future for our region’s economy.

The goal of the summit is to build awareness of the activities that are happening across a range of diverse sectors in the Edmonton region. When we look at what’s happening here, there’s good reason to be optimistic about our region’s future. We want to amplify the stories of what’s happening here and begin a movement where we work together to support these activities well into the future.

Sector spotlights centred around our region’s strengths in:

  • AI and Tech
  • Health and Life Science
  • Food and Agriculture
  • Hydrogen 
  • Global Logistics


  • Where we can work together to support investment attraction, retention, and expansion
  • What regional initiatives are taking place that will strengthen and diversify our region’s economic capacity
  • How regional strengths aligned with global trends are positioning the Edmonton Metropolitan Region as an attractive location for business investment
