North America's fastest-growing tech conference, Collision, will again be held in Toronto, the largest city in Canada and one of the world's top innovation and technology hubs. After a successful run in 2019, 2022, and 2023, the event draws thousands of visitors from over 140 countries. It will return to the Enercare Center at Exhibition Place in June 2024.
Hundreds of startups, investors, journalists, and some of the biggest names in tech, business, media, and politics are all present at the four-day Collision conference. The conference will cover artificial intelligence, data science, cybersecurity, fintech, e-commerce, social media, and more. It will also feature keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops, networking events, and exhibitions.
The conference also highlights Toronto's diverse talent pool, thriving tech ecosystem, and cultural, culinary, and lifestyle offerings. Toronto is home to more than 18,000 tech companies, employing over 400,000 people and generating $52 billion in annual revenue. With top-notch universities and organizations like the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, and MaRS Discovery District, the city is also a leader in research and development.
