Behind the Scenes at AWS Summit Toronto and Collision Conference 2022

What do you get when you mix an AWS Summit with one of the fastest growing tech conferences in Toronto? We call that one of our busiest weeks yet. Packed with networking, collaborating with peers, and learning from top thought leaders in the space, our week at AWS Summit Toronto and Collision Conference 2022 last month was a blast!

At the AWS Summit, Miriam McLemore, Director of Enterprise Strategy and Evangelism at AWS, shared her expertise on the innovations of the AWS platform and how AWS solutions are helping companies all over the globe. And over at Collision Conference 2022, Hollywood actress Lupita Nyongo graced the opening day stage with an appearance to discuss Super Sema, the first African American superhero animated series and what attracted her to the role. We also spotted “Dude With A Sign” with, well, a sign, and Batman flying around the Brampton Investments booth.

AWS is running events and Summits all over the globe that help technical professionals stay on the leading edge. And if we still haven’t seen you in person this season, here are just a few reasons to attend an AWS Summit:

  • Connect with and learn directly from AWS experts. Attend lectures, chalk talks, and panel discussions featuring industry-leading builders and founders who have been where you are.
  • Network with other startup founders. Recharge your phone and you social network at the AWS Startup loft, and get one-to-one advice from Startup Solutions Advocates.
  • See the latest AWS innovations and solutions. Get hands-on demos, meet with product leaders, and understand your startup options.
  • Be inspired by industry experts and leaders.
