At the Awards evening, the Winners are recognized for their innovation, expertise, and leadership in Canada's advanced technology community.

This year's theme is "Technology Futures!"

You’ll hear perspectives from an Executive Panel of keynotes who will help you gain industry insights for charting the future for your organization.

Some of the key questions that we will explore:

 –  what innovations  should we implement to ensure long term survival and growth?

 –  what markets offer the most upside potential and which areas face the most peril?

 –  what are the forecasts for investment, interest rates, and capital flows?

 –   will high unemployment stifle consumer recoveries in Europe and the United States?

 –  how far must the de-leveraging process go before business spending revives fully?

 Our experts will respond and provide a vision for the future:  Hear from the likes of:

  Craig Wright, Chief Economist, RBC Capital Markets
  Patrick K. Horgan, Vice President, Manufacturing, Development and Operations, IBM Canada
  Trina Alexson, Service Delivery Executive, Cisco Systems
  Lynda Partner, Vice President, Marketing, Redline Communications
  Lubor Ptacek, Vice President, Open Text
  Sir Terence Matthews, Chair, Wesley Clover 



Moderator, Paul Brent, CTV Host Tech Now will engage the Panel  in lively discussions. And as a Gala guest you will also be able to ask your question before the event. Send an email to info@cata.ca .
