I want to start blogging about this show with my overall impression. As usual, they had some very good speakers in the opening ceremonies. Also the speaker line up for Canadian Money Saver magazine was again very good. This series of talks on Saturday is aimed at a general audience and would be fine for investors at all levels.
What I like is that Canadian Banks are returning to this conference. They all left a few years ago. This year CIBC and BMO were there. I miss the TD bank and especially their economic talks. One surprise was the difference in the CIBC speakers. In the opening Benjamin Tal was very, very good. This contrasted with the very boring talk by Si Mokhtari. I would normally found Sid's subject of interest, but the presentation left much to be desired.
Another surprise was the Friday evening talk put on my Keystone Financial Publishing Corp and Ryan Irvine. This was great talk and very informative. Because of this I went to the Saturday talk by Ryan Irvine but this was a mistake. It was just a repeat of the part of the Friday night talk and so I left.
