Essentially operators’ conferences, this was the 6th in the series, which was initiated in 1989, and has always been held in Vancouver, the previous one in 2011.
This year’s event was held over four days, from September 20-23 at the Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront, and was organised by the SAG Conference Foundation, a Canadian registered non-profit organisation.
