2019 will mark the 10th year anniversary for the Ted Rogers Management Conference (TRMC), deemedÂ as one of the largest undergraduate business conferences in Canada. It is a 3-day event hosted by theÂ Ted Rogers School of Management in Toronto and offers unparalleled experience for the brightestÂ students across North America. This year the venue for the conference will be the high-rise hotel WestinÂ Harbour Castle in Downtown Toronto.
Some of the many previous speakers from past years include:
– Arlene Dickinson, CEO of Venture Communications, and cast member on Dragonsâ€™ Den
– Tim Hockey, Former President & CEO of TD Canada Trust
– Ellis Jacob, CEO & President of Cineplex Entertainment
– Allan MacDonald, President of Canadian Tire Retail
The highlights of TRMC over its 3 days are panel discussions, skill-building workshops, a start-up summit,Â industry exposition, and a case competition. There are also social events taking place at night, and forÂ that reason delegates must be at least 19 years old to apply to TRMC.
However, you do not have to be a business student. Undergraduates of any studies are most welcomedÂ to apply.
Last year a number of delegates represented UPEI at the conference.
Fourth year UPEI business student Evan Hawley described the conference as â€œa unique professionalÂ opportunity to dive right into the heart of Torontoâ€™s bustling business sector.â€ Hawley went on to say,Â â€œnetworking, case competitions, tours of huge company offices, and late night events made this eventÂ one of my most favourite experiences from university.â€
UPEI Student Union President Will McGuigan also attended last year. â€œTRMC wasÂ an amazing experience that I will never forget! Travelling to Toronto and meeting students from aroundÂ the country and working as a team, I was fortunate to have come third during the case competition andÂ will definitely be applying again this year,â€ says McGuigan.
150 students and over 100 professionals attend the conference annually. Last year 42 of the 150Â students were external delegates, and 21 schools from across the country have been represented atÂ TRMC.
The conference will take place March 7-9, 2019. Applications close on November 30th . Apply today at:
