The top 10 tech events in Toronto for fall 2015
Tech events in Toronto this fall are perfect for networking, for learning something new, or for keeping up-to-date on the latest innovations in the tech world via speaker series or expositions.
Here are my picks for the top tech events in Toronto this fall.
Genesys Hackathon (September 26)
Free food and drinks paired with the chance to win an Apple watch make this event a fun way to spend a weekend for those with the technical knowhow. You can form teams of up to three members and are encouraged to submit your application early as spots are expected to fill up.
Toronto Tech Summit (October 1)
If you're interested in the tech community in Toronto, this event, now in its second year, is a good entry point. Expect a lineup of engaging speakers who will talk about the latest tech trends in app development and wearable technology. Make sure to grab your tickets early as they're going quick.
Brain Station Community Social (October 1)
Enjoy post-work drinks, snacks and conversation at this low-key networking event. The aim is to bring together members of the Toronto tech scene as well as to showcase Brain Station courses and provide those interested with an opportunity to ask questions and find out more.
Tech Toronto Monthly Meetup (October 5, November 2, December 7)
These monthly meetups are a great way to learn something new - each meetup hosts five mini demos and presentations by industry experts. They also provide free food and beverages before each event thus creating a perfect environment for a bit of tech mingling.
Hack &Tell (October 6)
Based on the New York event of the same name, this is Canada's only Hack & Tell style group, which provides participants with the opportunity to present a hack of their own creation before an audience and answer questions in an open forum.
Uberflip Startupong 2015 (October 13)
Back for another year, Startupong is definitely the most fun event this fall. Uberflip will be taking over SPiN for a night of pingpong and tech, bringing together people involved in the start-up scene. Tickets are free as are food and drinks but you do have to register online.
Buffer Festival (October 22-25)
The Buffer Festival is like TIFF but for Youtube. The event showcases international video content from Youtube's finest creators through theatrical screenings and gives fans the opportunity to meet some of their favourites. Also look forward to a red carpet gala event and free meetups prior to screenings.
Fall Toronto Start-Up Job Fair (October 23)
Held inside the MaRS Discovery District, the Start-Up Job Fair is the largest of its kind in Canada and is aimed at both recent grads and professionals already working in the field. The fair connects job seekers to Toronto and Waterloo based start-ups. This year 37 different start-ups will be attending. Tickets are $5.
TAVES Consumer Electronics Show (October 30)
Now in its 5th year, TAVES is a huge, 3 day exposition connecting consumers to everything new and cutting edge in tech. The event showcases everything from gamming and wearables to home entertainment technology and drones.
Canadian Innovation Exchange Top 20 (November 17)
For those of you seriously entrenched in the tech field, the Innovation Exchange is a top event connecting investors to the best Canadian innovation companies, entrepreneurs and facilitators in digital media and information and communication technology. It consists of a jam packed day made up of key note addresses, interviews, panel discussions and plenty of opportunities to network.
