WHY VISAFF B2B EVENT?

Metro Vancouver is a leader in education and technology related to post production, VFX and digital entertainment. Global names in the VFX and animation industries have their base offices in this region. India is a major representative of the South Asian entertainment industry, and according to the latest reports from KPMG, the country's post production, animation and VFX industry is a $900 million USD industry, growing at an average rate of 15% per year. Collaboration between these two regions can create massive business opportunities.

This event will allow British Columbia based companies to take advantage of creative resources, cultural sensitivities and cost efficiencies by utilizing creative agencies in South Asia. South Asian companies will benefit from advanced technological infrastructures, and the project management systems of British Columbia's creative industry. These relationships will lead to faster and effective productions for both regions.
