Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show: 2020 Cancelled & 2021 Dates Announced

As the COVID-19 world pandemic continues to evolve day-to-day, the priority of the Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show Board during these challenging times is to maintain the health and safety of our communities. As such, Vision Quest 2020 (originally scheduled May 12-14) will be cancelled completely, with attention and energy shifting towards next year.

“Like everyone, we are dealing with this unprecedented situation,” says Kim Bullard, Chair of the Vision Quest Board of Directors. “First and foremost we want everyone to be safe, that’s what’s most important. We support the global call to action for keeping people apart, and will be cancelling our events outright. We look forward to bringing back Vision Quest in 2021, and until then, we wish everyone the best.”

The 24th Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show will take place next year – May 18-20, 2021 – at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.

Canada’s longest running Indigenous business, community and economic development conference, Vision Quest is a dynamic three-day gathering that encourages best practices, celebrates success stories, and showcases culture and tradition. Close to 1000 participants from across Manitoba and Canada take part each year, bringing together entrepreneurs, innovators, industry leaders, community organizations, training and education programs, and students.
