The fastest growing tech conference in North America will take place in Toronto from 20-23 May.

The first 100 speakers have already been announced. The tech conference brings together CEOs, startups, multinationals, investors and the media.
Toronto: The place to be in tech!
Toronto has the largest tech scene in Canada and is third on the list of the whole of North America. With more than 18,000 tech companies, Toronto has put itself firmly on the map as a tech hub. Toronto is expected to have more technology jobs within 2 years than Silicon Valley.
The 2019 NCCC Annual General Meeting and Company Visit will be held on 23rd April at the Brouwerij Pronck in Leiden.
The AGM will run from 14.15 - 16.00 and is open to members only. The meeting will be followed by a tour of the brewery. The brewers will tell you everything about beer, the brewing process, ingredients, and so on. When you login and register as a member, you will be automatically registered for both the AGM and the brewery tour.
During the tour part of the programme, another event will run concurrently. This briefing event, organized by the Canadian Embassy in The Hague, the Netherlands Canada Chamber of Commerce and Handelsroute.nl is for guests and companies interested in doing business in Canada and who wish to attend the Collision event in Toronto in May. More information can be found here.
Please spread the word within your network to companies that may be interested.
Parking is available at a number of locations within a few minutes walk from the location. Public transport brings you less than 1 minute walk from the brewery.
At the end of the afternoon, we will have a networking session where both groups will have the opportunity to mingle, make new acquaintances and of course, sample some of the brewery's finest ales.
Your vote is needed to ensure that the business of the NCCC is properly conducted and recorded. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, please sign the proxy form and send it to the office before the meeting.
