Why Attend ConvergX®

ConvergX® is a targeted conference attended by delegates in senior executive positions. The focus is to engage in discussion sessions to understand the future requirements of the industries and ensure innovation and access to new supply chains is provided.  The format offers sponsors, delegates, and presenters the opportunity to review progress, lessons learned and capabilities in an adjacent market with little or no risk. There are several networking opportunities and valuable feedback sessions built into the program to facilitate introductions and create meaningful partnerships.

“What do Energy & Defence Sectors have in Common? A lot more than you might initially think. Massive industry oversight, precision geolocating, and specialized logistics for equipment transport are just a few. How often do they come together to sell to each other or share intel? Rarely, if ever – until 2015 when Kim Van Vliet, CEO of WaVv Strategic Consulting put on the first ConvergX® conference to bring these vital sectors together.” – Melanie Love, CFA continued…

Benefits of Participation


With over 40 billion dollars in Canadian Government spending forecast in the Aerospace, Defence, and Security (ADS) sector, ADS companies are seeking partnerships to add value to the Canadian economy. The key – Canadian energy companies utilize similar technology as the Defence sector with unique requirements. There is a significant need to facilitate investment and acquisition of technology or services by Defence in Canada. As such, there is an opportunity for cross-sectoral diversification and/or licensing opportunities of your current products.


The energy sector is recognized as the most receptive to the innovation needs of Defence, and vice-versa. With equal levels of technological capabilities and needs, both industries are accustomed to the demand for innovation and global delivery of technology.


The conference will provide an opportunity for companies to meet and learn about each industry, initiate meaningful dialogue to create growth opportunities, encourage investment dollars into the Aerospace, Defence, Security, Energy, and Mining sectors while benefiting companies and their clients from those strategic relationships.
