The Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN) has secured a number of key sponsors for CDMN Canada 3.0 – a two-day conference on May 14 and 15 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto. CDMN Canada 3.0 is the annual culminating event for CDMN’s world-class commercialization activities like international soft landings, sharing of best practices, online collaboration and access to expertise and research that enables Canadian digital media companies to succeed at home and abroad. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Now in its fifth year, CDMN Canada 3.0 is attracting a TED Talk-caliber roster of keynotes. Following on yesterday’s announcement of Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, the conference organizers have also announced the addition of Steve Irvine, Group Director of Global Marketing Solutions at Facebook to the lineup of speakers. Facebook joins the already impressive list of speakers, which includes Jason Townsend, NASA’s Deputy Social Media Manager (who will be appearing via telepresence); Chris Anderson, best-selling author and former Editor-in-Chief of Wired magazine; and Jane McGonigal, game designer, futurist and best-selling author.
This two-day long conference for business leaders and IT executives celebrates Canadian achievements in the commercialization of digital media, defined as information and communications technology (ICT) and mobile innovations. It also provides attendees with the tools to grow their businesses, and make powerful connections to prospective partners and clients. To create more points of interaction, this year, CDMN Canada 3.0 has added 65 mentoring lunches that will give attendees exclusive access to proven, Canadian entrepreneurs who understand how to effectively do international business, grow a business and improve productivity through the deployment of digital media.
