ROBOTS, AI, IOT, CYBER, AUTONOMOUS CARS
Collision has grown from 5,000 to an expected 25,000 attendees. In its fifth year, the conference itself is the umbrella under which 12 other conferences take place over 3 stages, with in-depth discussions on subjects ranging from IoT, AI, automated and connected vehicles, data, security, design, investment, dev, marketing, music and sustainability. This week’s conference features more than a dozen stages, which are focused on specific industry tracks, such as marketing, design, coding and robotics.
The conference grew at such a fast pace making it necessary to consider other venues. “New Orleans is a very special town, but as Collision grows we sadly need to find a bigger and more globally connected home,” said Paddy Cosgrave, CEO of the conference. “I believe that Canada and Toronto have lived to some extent in the technology shadow of America. But that’s changing and changing fast.”
