What is NBTC?

Fuelled by a passion for next-generation technology.

For the past 18 years, the National Business and Technology Conference has been Canada’s premiere destination for students and professionals in the business and technology industry.

It’s a gathering of young leaders, CEOs, hackers, thinkers, and hustlers. It's a congregation of the industry’s innovators and the upcoming generation of founders, entrepreneurs and leaders to share and celebrate the innovation and diversity on which the technology community thrives. NBTC is hosted and attended by people who not only understand technology; they live and breathe it.

Each year at NBTC, hundreds of students take advantage of the opportunity to network with recruiters, participate in competitions, and learn about the critical technologies that are shaping the modern world.

In short, think IoT, SaaS, big data, deep learning and AI - and the limitless opportunities and applications thereof. Not familiar? Come to NBTC to learn more about the technologies companies rely on. Our conference will provide you the help you need to build a compelling case to impress our sponsors.
