Vancouver 2015 OverviewRegister Now


Christian entrepreneurial leaders have the potential to positively impact the marketplace, churches and communities on a global basis. Innovation is at the heart of entrepreneurship: doing something new, different and creative. An entrepreneur can innovate and turn an idea into action. Entrepreneurs are leaders—they are people of influence. They can influence all they touch, in all dimensions of life. A Christian value system provides a foundation and focus for entrepreneurial initiative. You either are an entrepreneurial leader or can become one—you can be creative, action-oriented and expand your sphere of influence. How do you do so? That’s what the Entrepreneurial Leader Conference is about.

The ELO World Conferences are the leading events of their kind, with a unique focus on Christian-based entrepreneurial leadership. The ELO World Conference: Vancouver will take place on Wednesday, November 4th.
The entire conference will take place on a single day, as opposed to recent years which included a day and a half of sessions. This year’s event is the 10th event organized dating back to 2005.

The venue for this special 10th anniversary is the Pan Pacific Hotel, one of Vancouver’s most iconic buildings and featured in most skyline shots of Vancouver.
