The sixth annual Cantech Investment Conference will be held in Toronto from January 29 to 30 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
Canadian tech investors, it’s that time of year again: the annual Cantech Investment Conference will be in Toronto from January 29 to 30, 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
In its sixth year, this year’s conference has expanded from a one day event to two days with a bevy of speakers, exhibitors and industry experts for investors to connect with.
The Cantech Investment Conference will feature more than 100 technology companies that span a wide range of industries, including: blockchain, cleantech, fintech and esports. The show will also have exhibitors in other sectors like biotech and pharma and, of course, cannabis.
What to expect at Cantech
With Cantech running for two full days for the first time this year, there’s certainly no shortage of activities for investors to absorb during the course of the show.
The show, which opens on Tuesday, will see the TSX market open live from the conference floor between 9:15 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. EST. From there, a panel discussion moderated by Nick Waddell called “Canadian Tech Analysts Share Their Top Picks for 2019” will kick off, which investors will surely not want to miss out on.
Other notable talks from the day will include more stock picks from fund managers at 10:15 a.m. EST, a cannabis and big data panel discussion at 10:30 a.m. EST, and a discussion on tech companies disrupting the healthcare industry at 2:00 p.m. EST. Mixed throughout the day are numerous company presentations.
Day two, which takes place on Wednesday, will see much of the same. Hockey fans will be treated to a panel discussion at 9:45 a.m. that will feature Toronto Maple Leafs’ Zach Hyman, who is also the president and CEO Eleven Gaming, called “Could an eSports Team Become More Valuable than the New York Yankees?”
Another esports panel will be held immediately after, called “eSports and eGaming: Where is the Money?” which will be moderated by Equity Guru’s Chris Parry.
Additional talks throughout the last day of the show will focus on biotechnology and cannabis, disbursed with numerous company presentations over the course of the day.
