Canada’s digital transformation event to take place April 12-13 at the Platform Innovation Centre in Calgary, with DX Journal announced as official media partner.

Get ready to dive into the world of digital transformation and innovation, as the mesh conference today announced it will kick off 2023 with its first event taking place at the Platform Innovation Centre on April 12-13, 2023. 

With a focus on four threads – business, media and technology, society, and marketing – the mesh conference will host Canadian digital transformation leaders who will meet to connect, share, and inspire others to think about changing the way we think, organize, operate and behave.

“Calgary is a hub of incredible startups, scaleups, and corporate innovators and we’re thrilled to be bringing mesh back in a city full of leaders and great ideas,” says Sheri Moore, co-founder of the mesh conference, and partner and creative director of boutique event agency Moore Carlyle Consulting. “We picked Calgary initially in 2020 for mesh because Alberta is full of large-scale and rapid transformation. The pandemic changed our launch plans, but we’re back and excited to connect Eastern and Western Canadian innovators. We can’t think of a better place to do that than at Calgary’s home for innovators, the Platform Innovation Centre.”

mesh relaunches as a multi-city event

Well-known in Eastern Canada, mesh aims to connect Canada’s DX ecosystem by making Calgary a new, permanent home 

Founded in 2005, the mesh conference is now a national event series and omnichannel experience focused on digital transformation. The mission is to create a digital transformation network and event experience that helps organizations and leaders not only determine what to do throughout their digital transformation, but how to do it — and how to succeed at it.

Platform Calgary will host the mesh conference over two days of keynotes, workshops and demos, and will act as a community partner for mesh as it grows in its new, permanent host city.

“The Platform Innovation Centre was intentionally designed to facilitate collisions that lead to innovation, new ideas and meaningful connections,” says Jen Lussier, COO of Platform Calgary. “We’re thrilled to be hosting the mesh conference this year, and look forward to seeing the impact that comes from bringing so many innovators together under one roof.”

mesh is the only digital transformation event that brings people from multiple industries from across the country for an event experience that touches on more than the boardroom or IT stack. Attendees will cross-pollinate ideas and find inspiration from people they don’t typically connect with — creatives, public sector employees, technologists, developers, business strategists and more. mesh believes in “meshing” people together to create unexpected, positive and transformative outcomes.

The move to an omnichannel experience

The mesh conference also announced that DX Journal, a digital transformation publication, and Digital Journal will be the event’s annual media partners.
“The mesh experience has evolved into an omnichannel experience, with impactful in-person conferences and an extended experience in digital channels,” says Chris Hogg, CEO of Digital Journal Inc. and a partner/co-producer of mesh. “We will reach millions of people this year via Digital Journal and DX Journal, and we look forward to sharing founder stories, capturing best-in-class DX stories from corporate innovators, and deepening sponsor value. The event+media partnership will have a profound impact on our mission to create a network and event experience that helps others be successful in navigating the complexities of digital transformation.”

The first in-person event in 2023 will follow the two-day format focused on creating opportunities for  dialogue, networking and solid take-aways that can be applied immediately. 

Day 1 (April 12) is filled with epic ideas and inspiration from industry leaders, and Day 2 (April 13) will be focused on practical lessons designed to provide attendees with practical takeaways they can apply to their lives and businesses.

Whether you’re looking to deepen your understanding of digital transformation, understand practical success factors from those who’ve been in the trenches, or simply want to network and make new connections, the mesh conference promises a unique experience.
