About

Event Overview

The current and future economic landscape thrives only when talent is well matched to local employment opportunities. The technology sector is booming locally.

Our economy has experienced an influx of data centres, an emergence of global technology firms, high-tech start-ups, and significant advanced innovative manufacturing growth. In July, KPMG’s Focus on Tax report listed Barrie as a top competitive city for the digital services industry, having the lowest overall Total Tax Index among cities worldwide.

March is Barrie’s Tech Month and the Train in Tech Expo will kick off a number of tech- related events taking place throughout the month. The expo will give tech start-ups and established businesses the opportunity to showcase their innovation to each other and the public through our media partners leading up and at the event.

Technology related industries are critical to innovation and business growth in our community. Be part of the technology movement!

Audience

  • Elementary and secondary school students
  • The public
  • Technology related businesses

  • As a special feature, the local Secondary School Robotics Qualifying Competition for Skills Ontario will be held at the Train in Technology Expo!
