CI@IC looking for Canadian firms for e-learning conference
The Canadian Interactive Alliance/Alliance Interactive Canadienne (CI@IC), an organization made up of Canada’s eight largest new media associations, and International Trade Canada are looking for Canadian firms to participate in an e-learning conference and trade show in Germany later this year. The new media organization and the federal government agency have joined to set up a presence for Canadian firms dubbed the eLearning Canada Pavilion at Online Educa Berlin, an e-learning event that organizers claim draws more than 1,700 delegates from upwards of 65 different countries. For $2,340, Canadian firms will get exhibit space, access to partnering support, and promotion during the conference, including at a VIP reception at the Canadian Embassy, home of the swanky Marshall McLuhan Salon. A special 75-minute Focus on Canada workshop will also take place on Thursday, December 1, which will highlight the accomplishments and offerings of Canadian firms in the e-learning space.Full details of the package can be found at New Media BC’s web site, http://newmediabc.com/index.asp. CI@IC was born earlier this year at the Vancouver International Digital Festival, or Vidfest, held on June 15 to 17.
