Last night the BCAMA hosted its Evening Speaker Series event at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Seven speakers had 7 minutes each to tell a crowd of hundreds what to watch out for in 2013 and beyond. Leaders representing some of Vancouver's top digital agencies (including Invoke Media, Burnkit, Taxi and Domain7) shared insights and forecasts of the digital world and what that means for businesses.
After an hour of schmoozing over wine and the soft and folksy music of local musician Zaac Pick, the evening was officially (and hilariously) kicked off by moderator Steven Cox, president of Cause+Affect and Producer of Pecha Kucha Vancouver.

We put our heads together and found the must have Christmas gift of the season. All you last minute shoppers, you're welcome! Noble handcrafted bourbon maple syrup is by far the tastiest maple syrup around. It's delicious by itself, on pancakes and pretty much anything else.

It may have been close to 30 degrees outside, but behind the scenes with Leone it was all about boots, fur accents and other fall fashions. This year the colour palette is bold and the clothes spectacular. The atmosphere was any fashion addict’s dream come true.
From Sweden to Japan, the people here at BFX come from a mosaic of different backgrounds. Our heritages do have one thing in common though, a history of tasty food. What does this kaleidoscope of culture taste like, you might ask? We decided to do some hard investigating...and had a cultural potluck.
