What is QBET?

QBET is Canada’s oldest and most innovative undergraduate business conference, which continues to bring together some of the most influential companies with Canada’s brightest future business leaders. This fast-paced, 3-day weekend strives to provide delegates with the unparalleled opportunity to explore current business trends that are impacting all landscapes, through Networking Events, Keynote Speakers, Workshops and so much more!

This Year’s Theme: Redefining Consumer Interactions

In today’s rapidly changing business environment, consumers must choose between an overwhelming number of organizations to satisfy their evolving needs. To differentiate, companies strive to offer experiences that extend beyond mere transactions of goods. Increasingly, organizations are leveraging disruptive innovations to enhance interactions between the consumer and the corporation through greater efficiencies. However, corporations are challenged to humanize automated processes in order to effectively deliver the loyalty building experiences that consumers demand. At QBET 2018, we will explore how businesses achieve the ultimate balance between connected consumer experiences and efficient business processes.

QBET 2018 presents Redefining Consumer Interactions: Balancing Experiences and Efficiency.
