ABOUT THE 2013 EVENT
Welcome to E-Town.
The Edmonton conference where educators meet entrepreneurs, explorers meet economists, and evangelists meet entertainers … and together we challenge the future of everything.
Where some of tomorrow’s most creative minds exchange ideas with today’s leading thinkers … about the opportunities that come from the evolution of technology and humanity.
Where participants emerge and engage in building solutions to some of our most pressing challenges … alongside some of our most influential business, political and community leaders.
Where our collective energy and expertise is unleashed … and we encourage the public policy environment needed to achieve our entrepreneurial potential.
The inaugural E-Town Festival in Edmonton, held at the Shaw Conference Centre on September 12th/13th, 2013, will bring together current and future leaders, innovators and activators to explore some of our most important questions:
Why are certain industries destined for disruption?
How does one look for opportunities through new lenses?
What is our potential if technology and humanity can coexist?
Who are the consumers, workers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow?
What are you working on? And how will it change the world?
E-Town 2013 is not your typical business conference. It is:
Expansive: Six keynote presentations on mind-expanding topics by today's leaders and influencers.
Engaging: Real-time idea exchange between participants, presenters on major discussion topics.
Entrepreneurials: Right-brain and left-brain united around creativity, innovation and opportunity.
Entertaining: High-octane presentations that we've come to expect in Canada's Festival City.
Exchange: Networks of idea-sharing and solution-building create lasting value.
E-Town is the first business festival of its kind in Edmonton and certainly won't disappoint. Be part of the energy and buy your ticket today! The festival is hosted by Edmonton Economic Development Corporation and some of Edmonton’s most successful entrepreneur communities, including: Entrepreneurs’ Organization, Startup Edmonton, Alberta Women Entrepreneurs, TEC Edmonton, Junior Achievement, Capital Ideas and Edmonton Executives Association . E-Town is built on an existing regional strength—a tenacious entrepreneurial spirit. The festival features not only a reflection on past learnings and stories, but a launching ground for ideas, change, self-growth and relationships. Attendees won’t be disappointed to meet and join the people in their city who didn’t just talk about their business ideas or leave them on a cocktail napkin. They put their ideas into action to get them where they are today.
