NEW VENUE: The Canadian Corps Association Hall
201 Niagara Street, Toronto, ON [pics]

Got a couple of big update announcements for you regarding Lift@Home Toronto happening on Nov 17th. The first being that we have finalized our speakers list. We have an awesome roster future-minded designers who have bravely stepped up to impress you with Demos from the year 2019. On top of which we’re super excited to announce our special guest for the evening Scott Smith Futurist, Technology Forecaster and fellow Lifter.

The other important news is that we’ve had a venue change. We are no longer at the Drake. Sticking true to the theme of “epic time-warp”, we have shifted the venue to the Canadian Corps Association, that’s on Niagara street just south of King and a couple blocks west of Bathurst. This venue has a certain special flavor of character which you may remember from recent Spacing parties and/or for their almost-inordinately generous beer prices. Prepare to be transported to a retro-Swiss-conference-disco-chalet from the future.
