Asset 11@6x

October 24-26, 2021

Delta Grand Okanagan Resort

Kelowna, BC

Summit Overview


The unique, invitation-only hosted format of ETx Canada, conducted in an upscale resort setting like the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort provides an engaging platform for keynote presentations, panel discussions, use case roundtable discussions , as well as one-on-one conversations with leading vendors and peers on the latest enterprise solutions and strategies.

ETx Canada has many avenues for our attendees to gain insight into how these investments will improve their overall digital strategy. Key aspects include:

Keynotes, Fireside Chats, Panels and General Sessions:

ETx Canada keeps things simple by having only one conference track to focus on. Attendees will sit in on a variety of sessions covering the latest topics, industry news and respected insights from leading solution providers, industry experts and end user executives.

Case Study Boardroom Sessions:

These highly interactive sessions presented by solution providers to an intimate group of executives give an inside perspective on the implementation and strategy of an actual customer use case. These sessions not only provide the vendors with feedback on end user wants/needs, but also promote candid discussions for end users to gain perspective from their peers within various industries.

1:1 Meetings:

Our 1:1 Meeting Zone allows our end user attendees, solution providers, and industry experts the perfect opportunity to connect with one another for 20 minute face-to-face meetings, which makes sourcing solutions painless for our executive attendees and makes connecting with prospective clientele cost-effective for our sponsors. Respected industry analysts and experts will also be present to discuss your needs and to help you move your own digital strategy forward.

Networking Receptions:

Connections can be made at a traditional trade show, but with our unique format, lasting relationships are forged through a multitude of networking opportunities. Attendees are able to network over two full days and dive more deeply into discussions that cannot be had walking a trade show floor. We believe that quality over quantity adds a higher value to the conversations and connections.
