Collision, the fastest growing tech conference in North America, is moving to Toronto in 2019.
The conference itself is the umbrella under which 12 other conferences take place over 3 stages, with in-depth discussions on subjects ranging from IoT, AI, automated and connected vehicles, data, security, design,investment, dev, marketing, music and sustainability.
Now in its fifth year, Collision has gone from 5,000 to an expected 25,000 attendees in New Orleans in 2018.
Collision began in Las Vegas and then moved to New Orleans for three years. It has become the most significant startup, investor and technology conference in North America, praised as “the anti-CES” and rivalling SXSW Interactive.
The move secures Collision in Toronto for the next three conferences happening in 2019, 2020 and 2021, building on the Toronto region’s momentum as a hub for technology and innovation and leveraging the strength of Ontario and Canada as diverse and inclusive.
All three levels of government, Tourism Toronto and Exhibition Place partnered for the bid, which is expected to bring more than 90,000 attendees to Toronto over the next three conferences with an economic impact of $147 million.
Created by the team behind Web Summit, the world’s largest and most influential tech event, Collision attracts CEOs of the world’s largest companies, founders of exciting startups, leading investors and media, from more than 120 countries. This is the first time the conference will be held outside of the U.S.
The 2019 conference will take place at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place, Toronto from May 20-23, 2019 – Pre-Register.
