    Developed in collaboration with Industry Canada, this two day national
event will create an opportunity for companies to learn more about the growing
Canadian wind energy market.
    Wind energy represents a major industrial development opportunity for
Canada. Between now and 2020 it is estimated that $1 trillion will be invested
in new wind energy facilities worldwide and that more than 1.75 million jobs
will be created in this rapidly growing industry. This has created a strong
demand for wind turbines and their components and manufacturers have been
challenged to keep up. In addition, the wind energy industry has a strong
demand for a broad range of services in areas like construction,
transportation, steel fabrication, engineering, operations and maintenance and
many more.

    The seminar will provide:

    - A presentation of the wind energy market in Canada and North America
      and its future growth prospects
    - An overview of wind turbine technology and the wind energy supply and
      value chains
    - An examination of opportunities in the wind energy supply and value
      chains for Canadian companies
    - Case studies of efforts to build wind energy supply and value chains in
      Canada and North America
    - Case studies of companies that have successfully entered the wind
      energy supply and value chains in Canada
    - Networking opportunities with wind turbine manufacturers and wind
      energy industry representatives to learn more about specific
      opportunities for your company in the wind energy supply / value chains
