How are new and innovative technologies changing the way we work, live and do business?

From artificial intelligence and virtual and augmented reality, to emerging health technologies and fibre optic networks, the future is happening now—right here in Edmonton—and it is local businesses who are leading the way. 

The research and development happening in our capital city is not only enabling us to revolutionize and diversify our economy, but also allows us to evolve how we connect with others to exchange thoughts and ideas, identify and provide cutting edge healthcare solutions and modernize the way we do business transactions and reach new markets—doing so more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

We invite you to hear from a panel of local innovators as they discuss the research and technological advancements that are happening in our own backyard. Hear from these leaders on how their organizations are spearheading innovation in Edmonton and how Edmonton businesses can benefit from these technologies and become innovators in their own industries.
