We, IoT North, are powered by Praxiem in collaboration with AIoT Canada.


ThingkFest is an IoT North online event allowing participants to share their involvement in IoT and hear what others in Canada are doing, innovating, and thinking in the IoT space. It’s a showcase with many Fast-Fire Four-Minute Short-Talks on different topics from across the full Thingk3D IoT Space across Canada.

Short-talks are selected from talk proposals submitted by Canadian companies, organizations, and individuals.  Everyone is welcome to attend to hear the talks and participate in the discussion and Q&A.

Topics range IoT innovations, products and services, solutions in different verticals, different domains and disciplines that enable or are affected by IoT, and socioeconomic and digital governance interplay with IoT.

For more info refer to Short-Talk Guidelines.
