VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- Cambridge House International is pleased to announce the grand opening of the Canadian Investor Conference - a diversified investment event, featuring experts and opportunities in the industries of resource, technology, agriculture, real estate, and more.
"This year we are partnering with organizations within the resource, technology, agriculture and real estate industries to amplify our show experience and attract investors and companies previously not seen at a Cambridge House show," explained Jay Martin, President of Cambridge House International. "We need to be one step ahead of the markets, and offer our attendee's access to emerging industries and investment ideas before they hit the mainstream."
Following the success of the Cantech Investment Conference in Toronto, Cambridge House will continue its partnership with the Cantech Letter and bring Canada's leading technology innovators and fastest growing companies to present and exhibit in Vancouver at the Canadian Investor Conference.
Agricultural opportunities will be featured at the Canadian Investor Conference, and what may be of interest to investors, was the recent move by Canadian entrepreneurial billionaire and former Cambridge House keynote speaker, Ned Goodman, in acquiring a majority stake in North America's largest organic beef operator. "I think we're heading into an inflationary environment," Ned commented in 2013. "I'm very bullish on gold...(and) anything that has a hard value - like real estate, agriculture or farmland. Resources are in demand."
Electric metals, also to be featured at the conference, "Are going to be as important to the world as electricity...as the internet," noted legendary Quantum Fund co-founder Jim Rogers. Future demand for electric metals will mainly be driven by technological applications, "because that's where everybody likes to put their money," Jim further added.
For investors seeking income and long-term inflation protection, the Canadian Investor Conference will also feature opportunities in Real Estate, to which past Cambridge House speaker and celebrity businessman Kevin O'Leary recently noted that, "Real estate is always 20% of my portfolio...(but) the opportunity (for Canadians) has moved south of the border. I think you're going to get over the next 5 years somewhere between 5-7% appreciation in pretty well every asset class in real estate in the U.S. market." Foreign real estate exposure is available through many publically traded REIT's, and the resources available at the Canadian Investor Conference will help people get started.
The Canadian Investor Conference is scheduled to debut at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, on June 1-2, 2014, and will offer a diversified series of opportunities and expert opinions. Free online registration is available now.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
