The Cyber Summit is a gathering of Western Canada's public, education and start-up technology leaders. The conference features workshops and discussions around the latest digital issues and solutions, and how they impact Canadians.

This November, we're pleased to bring you the 2020 virtual Cyber Summit!

The theme of this year's Cyber Summit is: “What's Next”.

As the new digital reality settles in, we must now look to the long-term future. The 2020 Cyber Summit will focus on cross-sector collaborations, and how digital leaders in Western Canada are adapting to the new normal. What tools, methodologies, and philosophies should we all consider — both in the public and commercial sectors — to ensure our organizations are thriving in years to come?

This year's online Summit will take place in the afternoons (1:00 – 4:30 pm MDT) of November 24-26, 2020. We will have more detail on schedule, presenters and workshops in the coming weeks. If you have any inquiries, please contact us at summit@cybera.ca.
