4 Things We're Excited to Do at Collision 2024Category

AI stole the show at last year's Collision Conference. Will 2024 exceed the hype? Check out the top four things we're excited to do at this year's event.

AI dominated at last year's Collision Conference, with everybody talking about it. Will this year live up to the hype? As an integrated communications agency, Talk Shop is always on the lookout for the latest trends and innovations to better serve our clients. Here are the top four things we're excited to do at this year's event.

1. Sit Front Row at Centre Stage

Centre Stage at Collision is where you can find the most high-profile speakers sharing their unique perspectives on tech, AI, health, finance and more. You’ll definitely catch us in the front row for these talks:

  • The real world impact of AI with Aiden Gomez (Cohere) and Sharon Goldman (Fortune)

  • Tough times, smart money: Fundraising in a downturn with Annie Lamont (Oak HC/FT) and Hannah Murphy (Financial Times)

  • Big tech won’t save us with Nathalie Kelley (Actor) and Chloe Melas (NBC News)

2. Build a Network of Brilliant Minds

Toronto is a hub for meeting cool people making big moves, and Collision brings all of them under one roof. From local entrepreneurs to industry leaders and peers, we’re excited to connect with the people shaping the future of tech and beyond. You’ll find us chatting with everybody during the conference and at the after-hours events — you never know where the next opportunity or insight might come from!

3. Keep Our Hands Up in the Q&A Sessions 

Q&As might be Collision’s best-kept secret. These are rare opportunities to speak directly with influential people. I mean, where else would you be able to ask social media personality Loren Grey and Sarah Sabry, the first Arab woman to go to space, your burning questions?

The intimacy of Collision Q&A sessions is something you just can’t get at any other event. We plan to be there so we can gain deeper insights into emerging trends directly from the horse’s mouth. This direct access to thought leaders is invaluable for refining our strategies and improving our services as a Toronto PR agency.


4. Try All the Amazing Food Truck Eats

Getting our steps in after running from talk to panel to roundtable sure makes us work up an appetite. And no conference experience is complete without indulging in some good eats! If last year’s unofficial “food truck alley” is any indication, Collision brings a range of culinary delights to enjoy. To satisfy our craving, we’ll be on the lookout for the best poutine around.

Heading to Collision? Reach out to us to Talk Shop or schedule a meeting at this can’t-miss event. We’ll see you there!
