Program

After a one-year hiatus, here is what you can expect from our third annual Ontario Innovation Expo

When a pandemic takes over the world, change happens out of necessity. While it may look a little different this year, on October 21, 2021 Innovation Guelph will deliver the immersive online experience we have all been waiting for; the Ontario Innovation Expo is back for its third and most exciting year yet!

“This year’s agenda is packed! 100 innovative companies will set up virtual 3-D booths to showcase their products and services,” says Mickey Campeau, Innovation Expo Manager. “There will be time to connect one-to-one with the entrepreneurs and sponsors, ask questions. Join us for a panel discussion with leading CEOs from diverse sectors, stages, and genders; opportunities to connect with experts, investors, potential clients, and more! In addition to the tradeshow floor, we are excited about our two amazing keynote speakers and an afternoon of matched investor-to-entrepreneur “speed-dating.” It is a day you do not want to miss!” says Campeau.
