CAFA was thrilled to host a Vancouver edition of its Tech Talk on Monday, Nov. 21st, 2016 at the beautiful Fairmont Pacific Rim.  The half-day luncheon discussed exciting trends in the world of digital commerce and how to build an omni-channel retail business in an increasingly digital consumer landscape.

The CAFA Tech Talk represents a new forum for technologists, retailers, and entrepreneurs to explore Canada’s emerging digital commerce ecosystem and interact with the companies shaping the landscape today.

Featuring a slew of notable names from tech and retail – including representatives from ShopifyKit & AceIndochino, Mobify  and more – the afternoon was brimming with valuable insight into today’s rapidly evolving consumer landscape. The diverse crowd consisted of eager entrepreneurs from all industries ranging from fashion to marketing.
