Happy New Year – 2024

Hello, WABE Friends!

 Vancouver was such a warm and positive experience for WABE, and we are grateful for your attendance at this year’s conference. We are currently planning for WABE in Edmonton and assembling our volunteer committee to help us achieve this year’s new initiatives.

 One of the things we learned in Vancouver this year was that when we invited new friends to come and experience our exhibit hall, read our educational papers, and meet the community, they all looked forward to connecting with us again. You know what is special about this community and being able to meet professionals working behind the scenes outside the constraints of the workplace to share and learn from each other.

 At WABE, we understand the challenges media and entertainment business are facing post-pandemic, and we hope that taking the time to come to Vancouver helped provide you with new information and a renewed sense of the skills and value you bring to our industry.

 Your thoughts about WABE are of utmost importance to those of us volunteering, so please take a few minutes to fill out this feedback on your experience this year in Vancouver.

Part of WABE has also been to take the time to celebrate contribution through awards. As you go about your year make sure to nominate someone you feel is deserving of a WABE AWARDS. It’s as easy as clicking the link and submitting the form so we can celebrate those who have dedicated time, extra effort and shared their expertise with our industry.

Our educational panels, discussions and speakers are an important part of WABE and we want to know what papers you attended and hear and your thoughts about our program and ideas for the future.
