With 500 people in attendance at this year’s Wavefront Wireless Summit in Vancouver, Invest Ottawa was there to ensure delegates walked away having a great awareness and appreciation of the talent, technologies, innovation, and partnership opportunities that exists in Ottawa.
Judging by the audience’s reaction, I believe that was accomplished. I often heard comments such as “Wow, I didn’t know that was happening in Ottawa” and “Really… there is more to government in Ottawa.” We were well armed with current statistics and success stories to dispel these types of myths.
To meet our business objectives, Invest Ottawa brought three local companies, (Flick Software, Skywave Mobile, and EION Wireless), to participate in our booth, tell their story, and identify business opportunities for themselves.
Martin Savard, Director of Strategy and Business Development at Flick Software said, “We received tremendous value from attending, both from a branding and lead generation perspective. The format used by Invest Ottawa was very successful for us.”
As the sun set on Vancouver this week (yes, the sun actually was out three times!), Ottawa looks forward to hosting the 2015 summit and Invest Ottawa will be there to support Wavefront in full force in an effort to help double the attendance.
