Alberta is becoming a tech hot-spot in Canada, and that is becoming more evident after the Accelerate-AB tech conference was showcased in Calgary.
The Telus Convention Centre was host to people from around Canada for the two day event focused on sharing new ideas and information about technology, as well as being a platform for people to network.
” I do think tech can be a hot spot in Alberta, I think it already is. I just don’t think the story is out there yet frankly.”
Attendee Mackenzie Bedford, community engagement manager for Rainforest Alberta, believes the event was event was a perfect showcase for people to see how Alberta is becoming more technologically driven. ” I do think tech can be a hot spot in Alberta, I think it already is. I just don’t think the story is out there yet frankly.” said Bedford after she was asked about the growing tech scene in Alberta.
Next year’s conference will be held in Edmonton, as it rotates from city to city each year. With an increase in attendees and funding compared to last year, it’s safe to say that next years conference will only get bigger and better.
Much like the growing tech scene in Alberta.
