Post Symposium Reception

When the adrenaline rush subsides, join us for one last networking event.

Compare notes with the other delegates. Celebrate your new deal (no guarantee on this one, but you never know!). And take stock of all you learned and the influencers you met.

And be there to find our who takes home the hardware for the McRock Digital Indstrial Awards.

It’s the perfect way to wrap up the Digital Industrial event of the year!

Speed Pitching Session

Are you a startup looking to meet some of the top global investors in the room?

This is your opportunity to test your best elevator pitch on the people who can make things happen. Bring your A-game. Hype yourself up in whatever way (no judgement here) and then get ready for a rapid-fire pitching session that could literally change your life. No pressure!

Date & Time: June 6, 9:00 – 11:00 am
Venue: Montreal Science Centre
