Celebrating 16 Years in Vancouver!

In 1998 we ran our first conference in Vancouver BC. It was for one reason: to build a community of like-minded professionals.
We wanted to provide a place where project managers and business analysts could meet new colleagues, share ideas and learn from the real-world experiences of industry experts, practitioners and solutions providers.

Diversified Business Communications, in partnership with the local chapters of the IIBA and PMI, is pleased to present our 16th Annual ProjectWorld*BusinessAnalystWorld conference in Vancouver.  This year we are excited to introduce a new element to the program: a dedicated
Change Management track!

How you can benefit from attending:

  • You can earn up to 23 PDUs and CDUs
  • Learn from the best industry experts and your peers
  • Connect easily with BAs, PMs and CMs across many industries
  • Learn proven Tips and Tricks you can use back at work

    We understand it is not easy to spare time from work. Our program allows you select a registration package that best suits your training budget and ROI.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or require additional information.
