Coming Up In August: Ecommerce Events In Toronto

Coming Up In August: Ecommerce Events In Toronto

It’s August already; where did the time go?

As we all wind down from the major ecommerce meetups, it’s important we keep our eyes on the prize. The big events may not be in August, but learning opportunities are everywhere in Toronto. I’ve included a list of some cool small events, many of which the VL OMNI team will be attending. Nevermind these are great opportunities to get out and about in the right circles in the city of Toronto to learn from like-minded individuals!

RetailTO – July 31st 

I’m cheating a bit here as this event is technically in July. But August is the day after so I feel like it still counts! Plus, RetailTO is one of my favourite event series to keep a pulse on what’s happening in the Retail space. Not just for ecommerce companies, RetailTO touches on some of the amazing technology that’s up and coming in the retail space.  Plus, it’s a great opportunity to network with many who have a lot of experience in retail and no matter where you sell, the insight will be invaluable. This is a must catch if you’re involved in the Retail space in Toronto. 

TechTO – August 15th

This is one of my favourite recurring events in Toronto! TechTo has been steadily growing event after event by bringing together a wide variety of skills, points of view and members of the tech community. Set up to emulate Ted Talk style presentations, experience quick, digestible, and actionable bits of wisdom to help you excel in your current tech position. Not to mention the networking – with so many industry professionals under one roof, you’ll make some amazing contacts to grow and learn alongside.

Toronto Affiliate & eCommerce Meetup by ABC & ScaleUp Events – August 16th

This is a light networking event for members of the ecommerce community. A small but still insightful event if you’re looking to build or work in the ecommerce business. Come join us for presentations by some of the most successful eCommerce entrepreneurs in the city of Toronto. It’s also a great opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and exchange insights on how to better grow and scale your business. 

Fashion Tech Networking Event – August 21st

It’s amazing the impact that ecommerce and technology has had on fashion retail. From empowering technologies to help with your brick and mortar locations, to offering a global audience through internet retail, technology is constantly changing an age-old industry.  Come and discuss some of the up and coming technologies in today’s fashion environment and see how people are empowering their businesses to achieve more.  



There you have it! The month of August is a lighter month in regards to technology events in Toronto. That being said, there are always opportunities to learn from amazing individuals. Come find me at the above events if you want to have a chat, or just enjoy the insights that’ll help you grow and empower your business.

Happy Learning!
