WHAT IS AN ECOMMERCE TOWN HALL?
Our Town Halls are a quarterly event based on engaging and informative discussions. The event is hosted by yours truly, Demac Media, along with our friends at MaRS. We’re two organizations who love to bring the Toronto community together to help bridge the knowledge gap in Canada’s eCommerce industry and push the market forward. It is a night of learning, sharing, and networking. We’re so excited for what we have planned! We hope you’ll join us!
