For two days – Thursday, October 6 and Friday, October 7, 2016 – the St. Lawrence River will be the focus of the AquaHacking Summit! Held at the Palais des congrès in Montreal, the conference will feature presentations and panels of water experts to address four main themes: adapting to climate change, spills and overflows, accessibility to the St. Lawrence River as well as innovation, technology and creativity as they relate to water.

An excellent opportunity to network with various key players in Quebec’s water sector and engage with the experts present. Notable speakers will include: David Heurtel, Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change; Denis Coderre, Mayor of the City of Montréal; Régis Labeaume, Mayor of the City of Québec; Mylène Paquette, first person in the Americas to have rowed solo across the North Atlantic; Professor William Rees, originator of the “ecological footprint analysis”; Mitch Garber, CEO of Caesars Acquisition Company & Chairman of Cirque du Soleil; Eric Boyko, President, co-founder and CEO of Stingray Digital Group Inc., and many others!
