Atlantic Canada is the site of the first stop in a Canadian Digital Media Network national tour that will elicit input from digital media influencers coast-to-coast and seek ideas to spark innovation and future employment for Canadians.
Findings from regional stops along the national tour route will be compiled and shape the agenda for the CDMN Canada 3.0 2012 digital media forum.
“The tour is being undertaken to ensure that influencers right across the country have a hand in identifying the challenges and solutions we’re tackling in the digital media sector,” said Kevin Tuer, Managing Director of the CDMN. “At the same time, we hope to give back regionally by sharing ideas on how a digital media strategy can help organizations innovate, increase job opportunities and benefit communities.”
Fredericton was chosen as the first stop on November 3rd because of the New Brunswick Innovation Forum being held November 2nd to 3rd.
“Aligning the tour stop with the Innovation Forum in Fredericton worked well to enable CDMN to consult with senior regional influencers and decision-makers to examine digital media strategies for the Canadian economy,” said Tuer. Tuer is also a speaker at the forum, presenting on the topic “How to take Canadian innovation international”.
CDMN is the organization that orchestrates the Canada 3.0 digital media forum annually and is responsible for creating a national corridor of collaboration among organizations dedicated to furthering digital media in Canada. =
