To ensure the health and safety of participants, speakers and our teams, AIxSPACE was held online on January 18 and 19, 2021, over two half days.
With over 330 participants and nearly 50 international speakers, the first edition of AIxSPACE was a resounding success, highlighting the need to further encourage companies to join and position themselves on this emerging market. This attendance was also coupled by a real motivation to connect among industries, with over 1,128 messages exchanged on the platform and 471 B2B meetings requests.
The success of the event reflected the need for Quebec and Canada to position themselves as leaders in this unfolding market to become one of the central poles of AI in space. With a well-established AI hub in Montreal and a growing space presence, the territory has a real potential for investment and innovation development. As Sylvain Cofsky, CEO of Innovitech simply said, "artificial intelligence will be the key" and with such a successful first event, it is hard to imagine that this will not be the case.
