Calgary Encourages Torontonians to Go West at Techfest This Week

Techfest Toronto returns to Steam Whistle Brewing this Thursday, May 10th and Techvibes is excited to announce that we’ll have some special guests from the City of Calgary.

Techfest is a unique recruiting event that connects the hottest hiring companies with top talent. Throughout the evening, hiring company executives pitch a crowd of potential employees on why they’re the best employer in the room—it’s a night of delicious drinks, fabulous food, and next-level networking.

Calgary Economic Development will be hosting the 2nd Floor Lounge along with five growing companies to see if they can convince Torontonians to make the move out West.

Clio, Critical Mass, NovAtel, Passportal, and Solium will be ready to meet with job seekers, outlining career opportunities in Alberta’s cosmopolitan city.

While Calgary owes its rapid growth to its status as the centre of Canada’s oil industry, a tech revolution is afoot.

With the highest concentration of HQs in Canada here as well as a growing tech and startup community, companies in Calgary have access to potential customers and innovation.

There are currently over 1,000 openings for high tech talent in downtown Calgary in renewable energy, clean energy tech, robotics, blockchain, artificial intelligence, cannabis tech and IIot.

Calgary has attracted hundreds of thousands of people in the last decade – many came out to accelerate their career and have stayed for the lifestyle – mountains, shorter commute times, affordable real estate and a great community.

But don’t worry, if your roots are settled in Toronto, there will be a room full of local Toronto companies hiring including BrainStation, Brim Financial, Coinsquare, EventMobigoeasy, Kira Systems, Sensibill, TouchBistro, and TriNimbus.

Grab a ticket today and explore your career options this Spring. Tickets are only $20 and include two free drinks, as well as delectable appetizers.
