Invest in Alberta / Xperience Alberta, is the official magazine of Economic Developers Alberta

Two magazines in one dynamic publication

Showcasing Alberta’s abundant appeal, Invest in Alberta/Xperience Alberta looks at the province through dual yet complementary lenses. One half of the publication, the Invest in Alberta portion, offers a keen and compelling exploration of investment opportunities within the province, while also highlighting the people and organizations that are making economic diversity and resiliency a reality. The other half, Xperience Alberta, will delve into the province’s tourism and lifestyle offerings, exploring the myriad cultural, recreational and educational opportunities that make living, working and playing in the province so compelling.

With a minimum circulation of 15,000, Invest in Alberta/Xperience Alberta reaches a powerful and influential audience within Alberta, throughout Canada and around the world. Distributed to EDA members, the federal and Alberta governments, Alberta chambers of commerce, tourism organizations, and strategically selected firms and business owners in key industries, this double-issue publication will draw on the already-established market presence of Invest in Alberta magazine, which has been published annually since 2015.

Invest in Alberta / Xperience Alberta is published by Odvod Publishing Inc. on behalf of EDA.
