Techweek, a traveling technology expo for entrepreneurs, tech visionaries and thought leaders to meet and “enable the innovation ecosystem in cities across the globe” is celebrating its fifth anniversary by expanding into Toronto. Founded in Chicago in 2011, the seven-day conference will also visit seven American cities, including New York and Los Angeles. While Techweek hasn’t confirmed a venue yet, the event is currently slated for the week of July 25 to July 31 in Toronto. In total, eight cities the event will travel to this year should attract over 40,000 attendees. The technology festival will be expanding to two new cities this year – Toronto, Ontario and Dallas, Texas. “Expanding into Dallas was an easy decision as it has quickly turned into a thriving world-metropolis with a bustling business market, along with Toronto being known for its burgeoning tech scene,” said Techweek.
Techweek Toronto will feature three key interactions within the tech community – idea sharing, business formation and engaging leaders. Idea sharing will feature forums to share new ideas and best practices, identify disruptive trends and reveal fascinating innovation stories. Business formation seminars and presentations will explore structures and programs that encourage, support and showcase the birth of new businesses. Engaging leaders will bring together key entrepreneurial leaders that will facilitate creative discussions and promote engagement.
In all, there are five ways to get involved.
- Festival events that engage the tech and entrepreneurial communities.
- World-class speakers tackling the latest topics and disruptive trends.
- Spirited start-up competitions.
- VIP invitation-only gatherings of tech creators, innovators, leaders and influencers.
- Numerous awards recognizing individuals and companies for their leadership, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit.
