Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Thank you for your interest in being a part of PivotTECH.

As an exhibitor, you will be among the best and brightest companies in Calgary looking to share your brand, create awareness of the types of tech jobs in different industries and/or hire and grow. Your presence at PivotTECH will provide exposure for your company and give you an opportunity to be matched to available talent. The addition of educational institutions will ensure that participants lacking these technical skills can choose suitable training and development opportunities.

Description

In our new digital economy, many of the fastest growing career opportunities are in technology, within non-technology industries. Discover how to tap into Calgary’s exciting new landscape and transition your career, while shaping our city’s future in innovative ways.

PivotTECH, an initiative supported by Rainforest Alberta, Calgary Economic Development and the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Labour, is a one-day gathering of employers and entrepreneurs, educational institutions and professionals, designed to help grow Calgary’s dynamic technology sector with our city’s skilled talent pool.

  • connect with talent who have the technical competencies that can help scale your business

  • promote your hiring brand in Calgary’s emerging innovation ecosystem
