Immersed Rapid Business Development Program

By Neil Schneider | TIFCA News

Immersed 2018 is takes place this coming November 8-9, 2018 at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, Canada.  This summit specializes in attracting top speakers and industry which practice future computing and building what’s next.  We already have leaders like Intel, AMD, The National Institute of Standards and Technology, Jon Peddie Research, and many more on our growing speakers list.

Delegates told us they want more networking to get more out of the show and speakers. The presenters told us that the time they get with event attendees are often monopolized and they don’t get to meet all the people they want to with their limited schedule.  The Immersed Rapid Business Development Program is something new we are doing at this year’s summit.
