Fueling the Corridor with Talent
3rd Annual Innovation Corridor Summit
April 29, 2020 | Bingemans | Kitchener, Ontario
What is the Corridor Summit?
Regional connectivity and collaboration fuel success in the modern global economy. Canada’s Innovation Corridor is anchored by the Greater Toronto & Hamilton Area (GTHA) and Waterloo regions – a high growth economic zone in Southern Ontario defined by a dense cluster of advanced manufacturing and technology firms. The long-term goal of the summit is to inform and drive transformational actions that shape the corridor’s future as a world-class region measured by talent, productivity and quality of life.
As a Corridor, we need to put our world-leading research into action. We used this day of discussion and advocacy to bring together regional experts to explore how to accelerate the growth of Corridor businesses through improved commercialization, collaboration and deployment opportunities. This Summit highlighted both advanced manufacturing and connected/autonomous vehicles. This summit was an initiative of Canada’s Innovation Corridor Business Council, a partnership of leading Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade in Southern Ontario.
This expert panel of leading companies and organizations discussed how they are pushing the envelope on productivity-enhancing technology in manufacturing. The speakers highlighted their successes and provided insight on how to build productive partnerships.
