It was incredible to be there, and provided significant learning. Canada’s creative community is an exceptional one, and I forged strong initial relationships. I left with a lot of ideas, and I do hope to return in years to come.

- Dave Silverstein, General Manager / SVP, Smosh

It is one of my go-to markets year after year. Great participants, informative and engaging panels, and most importantly, multiple global business opportunities that have directly resulted in closed deals and revenue. - Liz Levenson, Vice President, Development and Co-Production, Visland Media

It’s a very relaxed gathering of people from all aspects of broadcasting – producing, writers and creators. I think that’s very unusual in our world...it’s in the mountains, everybody relaxes, everybody wanders up and down the hallways and meets people that they never would have met in our structured business worlds. - Sheila Hockin, Executive Producer, The Fifth Business Inc.
(The Handmaid’s Tale,Vikings)

Life changing. What I learned and who I met in such a short period of time was Amazing. - Joy Haskell, Writer/Director/Producer

The entire experience felt like a whirlwind that I was grateful to be caught in. I’m still digesting all of the information I absorbed and following up with all the contacts I made. It’s jam-packed with knowledge and a great place to establish myself in the industry. - Jen Muranetz, Documentary Filmmaker, Estoria Productions

Every year, leaders and creators come together to share ideas and discuss what’s happening in our ever-changing media landscape. – Heather Conway, Executive Vice-President, English Services, CBC
