a canadian double whammy

Tuesday 24 February, 2009

I attended a couple of Canadian events in 1 evening last week.

1.  a group of IT firms paid Chicago a visit from Winnipeg Manitoba.

  • Frantic Films , a creative digital branded content & commercials producer of short form video I remember from when I worked @ the Canadian consulate, but don’t remember much more than that.  They’re looking to meet advertising agencies with up to 1000 employees.
  • OlaTech web applications developer seeking associations with associations (pardon the pun) for its in1touch member database for managing events, surveys, newsletters, e-mail campaigns, member forums, job opportunities, billing, payment processing, & reports.
  • Online Business Systems technology consulting company already has offices in the US & may be expanding in Chicago with a focus on Justice & Public Safety.
  • Technologies for Learning Group custom e-learning/(LMS) learning management solutions provider.  I worked with the principal when I worked @ the Canadian consulate & am working on hooking them up in Europe.

2.  Porter Airlines iniated services between Chicago’s Midway Airport & 6 Canadian destinations with Toronto as its hub.  Porter held a reception @ the new Trump Tower.   It was pretty swanky… & they gave away travel vouchers for flights on Porter.  Talk about good swag…
