Winter Culture & Innovation Showcase

New in 2017! For the first time, we are excited to host an Innovation Showcase, which will be open to delegates, and to the public for one special night of the Shake-Up!

The Winter Culture & Innovation Showcase will be held at the Shaw Conference Centre the evening of Thursday, February 16th, 2017. This event will begin at 6:00pm, with the Pecha Kucha Night commencing at 7:00pm. 

The showcase will feature technologies, practices, activities, equipment, music, art, fashion and food that contribute to thriving winter cities, winter living and economy. It is a celebration of the people, organizations and businesses that make winter life enjoyable, safe and unique. Interactive displays and hands-on experiences will be part of the action as we dig in to what makes life great in a Winter City! 

Winter Cities Shake-Up Sponsors automatically get a spot, but we would also invite groups to join us just for this special evening! If you are doing something innovative that makes winter more fun, more profitable, or even just more interesting, we want to show off what you’re doing!
This isn’t your regular conference, so don’t expect your regular “tradeshow”. There will be displays, fashion showcases, a DJ to keep the party going, and samples of food from winter cities around the world! From indoor to outdoor, we’ll light up this February night. 

To apply, please fill out the online application form here.  

There is no firm deadline, but we expect spots to fill up fast, so don’t wait too long! 
This will be a curated showcase so applications will be reviewed prior to acceptance.
