What to expect from Canada's 2019 Collision conference

 What is Collision?

Collision is a tech conference held in Toronto, Canada. It is the fastest- growing tech conference in North America and is now entering its fifth year. 25,000 attendees participated in the 2019 Collision conference held from May 20-23. This 2019 Collision was the first time that the conference had been held in Canada. Collision serves as an intersection of buyers and sellers of technology. In addition to being an excellent networking event, speakers will be hosting talks over the course of each day. These speakers, in 2019, included people like Seth Rogen (Houseplant), Peggy Johnson (Microsoft) and Ryan Holmes (Hootsuite). Collision 2020 will be held from June 22-25, 2020 in Toronto, Canada.

Why Toronto?

Toronto has created more jobs than any other city in North America from 2012- 2017. It is the home to 18,000 tech companies which collectively employ 400,000 people. Canada’s government has played an active role in the expansion of Canada’s tech industry. In addition to investments, the government flags its immigration policies and universities as an important reason for the growth of the tech industry. Canada offers several work permits that help to bring talented individuals to Canada to work. There are also incentives for students to pursue STEM degrees while at University.
