Track 1 -
Executive Boardrooms

An exclusive series of ‘Dragon Den’ sessions where ICT vendors will meet with a panel of key Canadian First Responder ‘investors’ and IT decision makers to present their unique product/service solutions, receive valuable feedback and meet interested buyers.

Track 2 -
Plenary Sessions

A running series of 40-minute Plenary Sessions led by First Responders on topics such as "how-to" sessions on selling to them, procurement opportunities, recent research, interoperability, broadband advocacy, and concluded with a town hall session.
"These Forums have proven to be a powerful and effective vehicle for bringing vendors and First Responders together for a rich exchange of intelligence. The Toronto event will be a must attend for ICT vendors looking to serve Canadian First Responders."
