Toronto will again become the centre of the tech world when Collision Conference 2024 arrives this summer!
North America’s fastest-growing tech conference, widely considered the ‘Olympics of Tech’, is a showcase of innovation that will bring together startups, investors and CEOs of the world’s largest companies to discuss and debate the technologies that are changing our lives.
Collision Conference, which runs from June 17th – 20th at the Enercare Centre, is now in its tenth year, boasting innovation and invention to change the world! Over 36,000 attendees from 118 countries will visit the 10 conference stages, each of which will focus on a different theme – from fintech to artificial intelligence, to corporate innovation.
Last year’s event was a landslide success, generating a massive local economic impact in the $150 million range, and further cementing Toronto’s reputation as a tech hub. It also received widespread praise for addressing issues that have long plagued the tech world, and this year’s event promises a similarly progressive tone, with topics of Canadian tech, diversity, and Indigenous representation.
Every night, conference attendees can meet up to explore a different Toronto neighbourhood for street parties, networking events and more during this official after-hours event. Last year’s attendees exchanged ideas over drinks at a patio party on The Esplanade, discovered the historic Distillery District, and experienced the creative pulse of Liberty Village.
Pre-arranged 15-minute meetings connect top investors with startups, facilitating connections… and maybe leading to the next great partnership. Investors can also take advantage of the Dealflow investor track, which provides access to a database of high-potential startups, specific investor events and a private investor lounge designed to facilitate connections.
What better place to roll out your latest innovation than in front of the world’s top minds in tech and the international media? Many companies plan announcements during the conference, where maximum press coverage is assured.
The best and brightest minds in tech, media, politics and entertainment have graced the Collision stages in years past, and 2024 is no exception. This year the conference will welcome speakers like Ben Chestnut, co-founder and CEO of Mailchimp, Jamie Moldafsky, CMO of Wells Fargo, and Toronto Mayor John Tory. You can also expect to hear from more leading startup founders and C-suite speakers from companies like Uber, PayPal, Sidewalk Labs and Condé Nast.
