About the event 

Join us in Toronto this October to connect, learn, grow, deal and, dare we say, party with nearly 200 of the best (and best-performing) professionals from our tight-knit group of advertisers and publishers. It turns out networking doesn’t have to feel like work. Start building close relationships that close big deals—without a zoom call in sight.
