About the 2018 Annual Conference

The Southeastern United States – Canadian Provinces Alliance (SEUS-CP) is a strategic partnership between six southeastern U.S. states and seven member provinces from Canada, established in 2007 to enhance economic ties and encourage technological and scientific exchanges between the two regions.

The state of Alabama will host the Alliance, for the first time since the inception of SEUS-CP, in Mobile on June 3-5, 2018. The theme “Shared Values For A Prosperous Future” will build on past conferences in developing common strategic goals and opening doors for businesses from the member provinces and states.

Delegations, led by state governors and provincial premiers (or their designees), are comprised of business and industry leaders. The conference program will feature experts in the field of transportation, information and communication technologies (ICT), and energy. Business-to-business meetings will be offered for companies within these same sectors. The conference goal is to present clear opportunities for enhanced commercial exchanges, two-way trade and investment and knowledge sharing between and among member states and provinces.

Visiting Mobile

If you’re visiting Mobile, you are sure to find a warm welcome. Mobile’s Southern hospitality is rivaled only by its love of good times. Mardi Gras in America started on our streets, and that lively 300-year-old tradition of revelry means this city knows how to throw a party where everyone is welcome. Mobile’s rich history and culture are on display in museums, theaters and festivals throughout the year. A mild climate means you can enjoy world-class golf or explore the wonders of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta in any season. You will find lots to see and do, but remember: If you work up an appetite, a great meal is easy to find.
