The highly anticipated FutureBizNow hybrid Conference 2023, scheduled for October 25, 2023, at The Connect Centre in Milton, Ontario, is rapidly evolving into a historic event.

Honorable Johnny Ford

FutureBizNow, in partnership with NPA Canada, is thrilled to announce the historic and official visit of the Honorable Johnny Ford, alongside other distinguished VIP delegates, who have been invited by NPA Canada to partake in this groundbreaking event.

The Honorable Mayor Johnny Ford of Tuskegee, Alabama, a visionary and the founder and CEO of the World Conference of Mayors for Historical Black Townships, has long been an advocate for preserving and celebrating African-American history and culture.

Adding to the significance of this event, Mayor Ford will be accompanied by a notable VIP delegation that includes Former Mayor Darryl Johnson of Mound Bayou, Mississippi. On October 5th, Mayor Johnson made headlines when he unveiled the Till Movie Exhibition in the recently opened Mound Bayou, Mississippi African American Museum in Mound Bayou, commemorating a pivotal chapter in the civil rights movement. Joining them is Reverend Dr. Al Sampson of Chicago, Illinois, who holds the unique distinction of being the only living person ordained by the Honorable Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King. Both luminaries have confirmed their attendance at the FutureBizNow conference and will actively participate in NPA Canada's events, including the captivating October 26th "NPA Canada US Underground Railroad" tourism bus tour to Buxton, Ontario, Canada.

On October 25th, Mayor Johnny Ford and the distinguished VIP Delegates will be warmly received by the Honorable Mayor Gordon Krantz of Milton, Ontario. Together, they will officially inaugurate the FutureBizNow Conference.

Following this, on October 26th, Mayor Johnny Ford and the VIP Delegates will be warmly received by the Honorable Mayor Darrin Canniff, Mayor of Chatham Kent County, and by the Prince family, who are 7 th generation custodians and curators of the North Buxton Museum in Buxton. This historic visit marks a significant milestone in the collaboration between NPA Canada and the World Conference of Mayors (WCOM), underscoring our commitment to fostering international connections and the exchange of innovative ideas.

This gathering promises to foster meaningful connections, celebrate heritage, and drive discussions on the intersection of technology and community development.

The FutureBizNow Conference 2023 together with "NPA Canada US Underground Railroad" tourism bus tour to Buxton, Ontario is more than just an event; it is shaping up to be a historic moment where visionary leaders, innovators, and communities converge to explore the future while honoring the past. With a diverse lineup of distinguished speakers and a dynamic hybrid format, the conference seeks to empower businesses, entrepreneurs, students, educators, and visionaries to unlock the boundless potential of the digital era.

As we prepare for this momentous occasion, we extend our warmest welcome to Mayor Ford, Former Mayor Darryl Johnson, Reverend Dr. Al Sampson, and all the distinguished VIP delegates.
