8 Reasons To Attend The Cyber Summit

With the 2018 Cyber Summit just around the corner, we wanted to give you even more reasons why you don’t want to miss out! 

Top 8 reasons to attend the 2018 Cyber Summit:

1. Hands-on learning. Big level thinking.

With over 24 speakers, two fantastic keynotes, and two hands-on workshops, there is no shortage of learning opportunities on hand at the Cyber Summit.

2. Network with industry experts

Connect with like-minded individuals to discover new tools and approaches to technology, ethics and privacy in industry and education. This is your opportunity to learn from others and network.

3. Relax and get inspired in the Rocky Mountains

Rock your mountain chalet casual attire while you soak in the beauty of the Kananaskis. Relax, indulge and linger in the Pomeroy Lodge’s tranquil Nordic Spa (Summit attendees get a discounted rate of $55 dollar to access the spa for a full day).

Don’t forget to book your hotel stay by calling +(403) 591-7711.

4. Learn strategies to apply to your organization

Help your organization stay ahead of the coming digital disruption, including the impact of AI, blockchain, and so much more. In today’s fast-changing world, the Cyber Summit has a key stop for Canadians to discuss the applications, and implications, of what lies in store for students and workers.

5. Be inspired by the visionary keynote speakers

It’s a speaker lineup you won’t find anywhere else! Andrew Keen will provide a thought-provoking (and sobering) look at the social impact of the internet economy, while Denise Williams will address issues of fair and equal access to technology in Canada, particularly for First Nations communities.

6. Understand how to better protect kids (and adults) when they go online

The Summit will also feature experts speaking about digital literacy, ethical use of personal data, and how to inspire more students to learn to code. Two-panel presentations will also touch on improving cybersecurity initiatives across Canada, and growing our tech talent pool.

This is our most compelling lineup of tech experts, speakers and workshops to date.

7. Fun will be had!

The Summit is a family affair. We want guests to relax and enjoy their time in the mountains. That’s why we’ve planned three special social programs, including stargazing, a pub quiz, and evening entertainment that will leave you laughing for days.

There is also a strict no-suit dress code for the Summit. We like to keep it “mountain casual” (as demonstrated by our CEO Robin Winsor, right) so feel free to pack your jeans and flannel!

8. A gala like no other

Join Julian Faid and Matt Schuurman from Rapid Fire Theatre as they delight and dazzle at the Cyber Summit’s evening gala. Rumour also has it that the Pomeroy Lodge has recently launched a new banquet menu, and we get to be among the first to try it!

Did we mention that dinner and drinks are included in your ticket?
