Gathering industry and students for Alberta IoT’s Demo Day, Alberta IoT was thrilled to bring together 20 exhibitors, 70 industry representatives & faculty,and more than 140students, based on registration metrics, to help build talent within the province of Alberta. Demo Day sought to showcase the impact and opportunity technology has across various industry sectors with a focus on traditional industries such as construction or telecommunication. The event was a great opportunity for students and industry to come together to explore emerging technologies, raise awareness of the potential for technology in traditional industries, and for Alberta IoT to support the growth of new tech talent to support the growth of these sectors.
