"It's a challenging time for the energy industry," says Perry Spitznagel, Vice-Chairman and Managing Partner of Bennett Jones' Calgary office. "Economic, political and social forces are combining to demand innovative solutions for the production and delivery of energy in a cost competitive manner. Our strategies in response to these forces will have a profound impact on our energy future".
The Business Forum is held in conjunction with the first men's World Cup downhill and super-G ski races of the season at Lake Louise.
"The Business Forum generates a great deal of awareness for alpine ski racing and we truly appreciate this. It helps us achieve our vision of Canada as a world leader in alpine, para-alpine and ski cross racing," says Mark Rubinstein, President and CEO of Alpine Canada. "The upcoming race is an excellent example of this—it's the only World Cup outside of Europe to join the ranks of the famous Club 5 Ski Classics."
