Collision returns to Toronto this month with a stacked lineup of tech stars

Technology giants and industry leaders from around the world are coming to Toronto this month to attend North America’s fastest-growing technology event.

Collision, created by the team behind Web Summit, is hosting its first in-person event
in two years from June 20 to 23 in the Enercare Centre.

Collision 2022 is welcoming over 33,000 attendees from around the globe for an action-packed three days of speakers, networking, pitch sessions and workshops, and more. And tickets are on sale now.

“It’s a privilege to play an important part in Toronto’s reopening, as thousands travel from across the world to do business and meet each other again in person,” said Paddy Cosgrave, founder and CEO at Collision, in a release. “While we’ve successfully hosted Collision online for the past two years, with 140,000 virtual attendees, nothing compares to in-person events.”

“This is an exciting moment for our city as we continue to reopen. The decision from Collision to host an in-person event this year reinforces the confidence I have in our city and all that we have to offer,” said Toronto Mayor John Tory in a statement. “During this event, we will have the opportunity to showcase the growing technology and innovation sector in Toronto and our deep pool of diverse tech professionals – all of which will help create more employment opportunities and investments and ensure that we come back stronger than ever.

“I look forward to welcoming startups, governments, organizations and visitors from around the world to Toronto in June.”
