++ Action Item: Register today for our Thursday, Sept. 19th Teleforum (beginning at 2 pm EST) on First Responder Vendor Outreach

Join a live webcast to discover the opportunities and outcomes for business and emergency responder leaders who participate in the annual First Responder Vendor Outreach Forum: now in its sixth year and taking place in Toronto, on October 8 & 9, at the Royal York Hotel.

This year’s Forum features an Opening Keynote Address by Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair, with the Day 2 Opening Keynote being presented by Dale McFee, Deputy Minister, Corrections and Policing, Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice.

Event co-founders, Inspt. (Ret.) Lance Valcour O.O.M., Executive Director of the Canadian Interoperability Technology Interest Group, and CATA’s VP Research, Kevin Wennekes, co-host the call and will provide details on this unique Forum, including the exclusive Executive Boardroom series, which enables senior executives of innovative technology companies an opportunity to privately meet with a select group of over two dozen senior first responder and public safety authorities.

Joining the conversation will be current and past corporate sponsors and public safety Boardroom executives. The discussion will offer a more detailed examination of the event roll-out, how the Executive Boardroom series works, and identify the benefits realized by both the public safety and vendor communities through their respective participation.

Participants will be provided an opportunity to ask directed questions through a planned Q&A session.
