GreenTech 2020

A SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL PROGRAM!

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of our flagship event, GreenTech 2020, which was set for  June 2-4 in Montreal, Quebec.

We might have put one knee down in front of COVID-19 and cancel our flagship event, however, we had not said our last word!

In a effort to relay some of the valued knowledge sharing, networking and discussions at the core of  GreenTech, our team developed six interactive, video-conference sessions.
