Canada’s only national digital media conference focused on the commercialization of innovation returns this May.
Canada 3.0 2013 will feature world-class speakers, a wide-ranging program and showcase of Canadian entrepreneurship on May 14 and 15, 2013 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, according to the organizers.
Hosted by social media expert Amber Mac, it's expected to draw more than 2,500 attendees.
“This is the fifth annual Canada 3.0 conference being staged for the first time in Toronto, and it’s an event not to be missed by anyone interested in leveraging innovation for commercial success,” said Kevin Tuer, CDMN Managing Director. “CDMN has a national mandate to grow Canadian digital media companies and jobs in Canada, and the annual Canada 3.0 conference is a major contributor to that goal.”
This year’s keynote speakers include Chris Anderson, former editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine; Jane McGonigal, futurist and bestselling author of Reality is Broken; Lane Merrifield, cofounder of Club Penguin; and NASA’s Deputy Social Media Manager Jason Townsend.
There will also be up to 65 mentoring roundtables within five topic streams that include: productivity, connectivity, access to capital, access to talent, and the mobilization of digital content.
