Attending conferences can be a great way to learn, grow and network with successful people. But as a student or recent grad, it can be challenging to come up with the kind of cash required to attend – conferences often cost many hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
You’re in luck: TalentEgg has one ideacity ticket ($3,000 value) to give away to a lucky student or recent graduate who wants to explore new ideas and network with professionals from a wide variety of industries.
ideacity is Canada’s top gathering of thinkers and doers – a constellation of top talent in the world, assembled for three days each June for a festival of talk, thought and conversation. The conference will be hosted at Koerner Hall within downtown Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music on June 19th, 20th and 21st, 2013.
50 of the planet’s brightest minds will converge in Toronto on those dates to speak to a highly-engaged audience of knowledgeable, engaged and dynamic people who understand the value of investing in the spread of new ideas.
