Dear CTA members,

I want to bring to your attention that the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2012) will take place in Montreal, Canada from October 22 to 24, 2012. The organizers have put together an impressive program that will feature more than 100 high-profile speakers - from industry, government, and academia - to discuss the business opportunities offered by the digital society. Mr. Larry King is among the presenters and will moderate a panel entitled "The Digital Era and the Impact on our Society”.

We believe that WCIT 2012 is a unique occasion to:

  • develop multinational and cross-industry contacts and partnerships with decision-makers from developed and emerging economies. With WCIT 2012 networking platform, delegates can schedule meetings prior to departure. Confirmed delegations include: Bangladesh (25), China (20), France (10), India (20), Japan (20), Korea (10), Malaysia (25), Mexico (70), rest of Latin America (200+), Nigeria (15), South Africa (10), Spain (15), Taiwan (40)
  • network with big players from around the world: WCIT 2012 is a bi-annual event that brings together 3,000 global leaders from business – including the Fortune 500 CEOs and CIOs –, government and academia from over 80 countries
  • meet members of the international VC community: WCIT 2012 has invited 25 venture capital firms to attend the Congress
  • discover Canadian products and services: WCIT 2012 will feature a state-of-the-art augmented reality tradeshow that will present a digital selection of Canada’s smartest and most innovative companies
  • listen to 100 high-profile speakers: discover where the digital society is going and gain insights on the impact of major ICT trends on business (program)

One the theme of "ONE Vision for a Global Digital Society", the Congress will explore what leading innovators or countries are doing and reflect on the challenges and opportunities that technology continues to create in our economy at large and in key sectors such as healthcare, education, smart cities, the environment and the media.
