On June 13th, Calgarians gathered at Central Library to discuss, collaborate and network at Avenue‘s fifth annual Innovation Event. A day filled with inspiring stories and exciting ideas, the event showcased why Calgary’s reputation as an up-and-coming innovation hub is growing rapidly.

Following a land acknowledgement by Cheryle Chagnon-Greyeyes, the first half of the panel discussions tackled topics like simulation in education and creating high-tech products beyond software. More panel discussions on using captured carbon to make products, innovative ecosystem supports, technology and Indigeneity, and food technology companies continued into the afternoon.

At the event, several interactive presentation booths were set up to highlight some of the innovative works and products being discussed by panelists and the companies they represented.

The day ended with a cocktail reception that gave panelists and attendees a chance to network and connect further. The reception featured a performance by Kevin Stebner’s GreyScreen project, a unique audio-visual performance Stebner created by altering and tuning the chips of vintage gaming systems.

​​Avenue‘s Innovation Event was made possible thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and community partners: Calgary Chamber of Commerce, Platform Calgary, Chartered Professional Accountants Alberta, ElevateIP Alberta, Calgary Economic Development, Global Calgary, Mount Royal University and Cerco Design.
