Established in 2012 by an undergraduate student at McGill University and in partnership with evenko, Entertainment Management Conference (EMC) is a student-run initiative that exposes students and young professionals of the Montreal community to the world of entertainment. EMC is a unique conference that explores the interdisciplinary facets of the entertainment industry including but not limited to music, film, gaming, media, nightlife, art, and live events.

Desautels Business Conference on Sustainability
DBCS targets some of the brightest students from universities across North America to gather a multilateral perspective on issues related to sustainability. While most delegates are in business programs, students from other fields of study such as engineering, science, arts, and environment also attend. The conference invites leading experts from corporations, non-governmental organizations and academia to speak to students and provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to help ensure a sustainable future. DBCS focuses on the three realms of sustainability that affect and are affected by business practices: social, economic and environmental.
The Empower McGill: Embracing Disabilities in Business Conference is a student run initiative to provide the tools necessary to promote disability inclusion in the workplace. Recognizing the capabilities within all individuals, the conference strives to break down barriers set intrinsically by students themselves and extrinsically, in the work environment. To do so, we aim to build an event that is inclusive, diverse, and accessible to all participants, redefining the perceptions associated with disabilities and empowering individuals to build confidence.
