It’s that time of the year again when BGIS begins laying the groundwork for An Inspired Future.

Now in its 9th year, An Inspired Future provides a forum for decision makers like yourself to learn about opportunities to improve your organization's financial performance while reducing your respective environmental footprint and plan for the future.

With the success of the virtual conference over the last two years, and in order to continue to broaden participation across the globe, we will once again be hosting our conference "virtually". We anticipate a much larger audience than usual, providing our sponsors with increased visibility.

We would be honoured if you joined us as one of our distinguished supporters. Our sponsors will be provided with visibility through our social media channels and website, BEIC membership (for Title and Wind sponsors), spotlights and advertisements in Canadian Property Management magazine e-newsletter and REMI e-newsletter (for Title and Wind sponsors), media coverage in the BEIC Special Supplement and enewsletter advertisements , as well as digital and verbal recognition during the event.

Sponsorship options and sponsor recognition are outlined on pages three and four of this event prospectus. For more information, please reach out to Lucshnavy Balendra at (416)434-5942 or

Proceeds from this event will be provided to The Building Energy Innovators Council (BEIC), a not-for-profit industry driven council established to accelerate the collaboration, innovation and adoption of clean building technologies to support the reduction of carbon emissions and reduce the resulting effects of climate change.

We look forward to you joining us at An Inspired Future 2023 on February 2, 2023.
