A Word from the CEO

Nicholas Rémillard

Chief Executive Officer,

International Economic Forum of the Americas (IEFA)

At a time of uncertainty and global recovery, the International Economic Forum of the Americas (IEFA) remains committed to providing a platform for global exchange. By hosting last year’s hybrid editions of the Conference of Montreal, World Strategic Forum, Toronto Global Forum, and Conference of Paris, the Forum was able to bring together – both virtually and in-person, major international thought leaders and decision makers from both public and private sectors.

Last year, various relevant themes such as the global economy, healthcare, finance, energy, innovation, education, cyber-security, manufacturing and the path for a sustainable future were discussed by world-leading experts during the four conferences, which served as a platform for diverse speakers to share their vision on the economic recovery and to discuss the concrete strategies needed to thrive in this new era.

Additionally, the Forum successfully developed a new range of services, such as organizing private one-on-one meetings with the right contacts for businesses, assisting in event production, and running yearlong roundtable meetings, independent from our annual conferences, in which we count the participation of executives and government leaders from around the world.

To continue this mission together, the IEFA looks forward to welcoming you at our next 4 hybrid events: the 28th edition of the Conference of Montreal on July 11-13, 2022; the 16th edition of the Toronto Global Forum on October 17-19, 2022; the 11th edition of the Miami World Strategic Forum on October 31 – November 1, 2022; and the 6th edition of the Conference of Paris on December 15-16, 2022.

In the meantime, sessions from last year’s conferences are available on our YouTube channel, where we also invite you to join us for the IEFA Conversation Series – a set of virtual weekly conversations with business executives, government leaders and renowned experts, dedicated to advance understanding, exchange insights and share solutions on the major issues facing the world.
