In May this year I was in Toronto to attend Collision, North America’s fastest-growing tech conference. I was really looking forward to this conference, after having attended Web Summit in Europe for several years and having thoroughly enjoyed that sister conference.
I wasn’t disappointed by the conference. Toronto turned out to be a great location for such a conference.
I met a lot of interesting startup founders. In comparison with Web Summit I would say that I enjoyed the talks at Web Summit more; they were more interesting to me than those at Collision, however that might just have been due to my particular interests.
The majority of startups focused on North America, so if you’re a European startup that wants to promote your product or services I would recommend attending Web Summit over Collision.
If you want to have a taste of the kind of presentations given at Collision, you can head over to the Facebook page where you can watch various videos of these presentations.
Here are some of the highlights from this year’s edition:
- Oculus co-founder: I got fired from Facebook for no reason at all
- Tech conference ‘Collision’ focuses on women in industry
- Twitter is trash. But Ev Williams still wants to save the world
- Senso.ai announces $1.5 million CAD raise at #CollisionConf
- For venture capitalists at Collision, the big question is: “What’s left to disrupt?”
- Mark Zuckerberg should hire a new Facebook CEO, former Facebook exec says
