Welcome to the three-day immersive event that will transform the way you do business.
C2 brings together commerce and creativity to explore trends, opportunities, disruptions and major shifts on the horizon. Each year, in a collaborative environment specifically designed to provoke collisions and spark new ideas, C2 Montréal inspires 5,000 executives across continents and industries to challenge their biases, shift their perspective and explore completely new ways of doing business.
• Getting your hands dirty:
C2 brings together talented creatives, young entrepreneurs, and high-level executives across industries, disciplines and countries. A broad variety of workshops encourage the collision of ideas and approaches. Together, participants examine case studies, experience new processes, and prototype creative solutions to real business problems.
• Meeting the right people:
Each year, C2 Montréal gathers 5,000 of the most innovative people from around the world. When you’re in such good company, you could potentially learn more from the person sitting right next to you than from the person on stage. Online and offline connection mechanisms help participants find their match and plan ‘braindates’, as baptized by peer-learning pioneers E-180.
Every element of the event is also designed to maximize meaningful connection opportunities that appeal to all participants – from terrified introverts to avid hand-shakers.
• Celebrating our successes and failures:
Participants are invited to connect on a whole other level through a series of spectacle-filled evenings showcasing leading international and promising local artists and performers. C2 festivities have involved artistic partners including the world-renowned talents of Cirque du Soleil, Moment Factory, Centre Phi, Circo de Bakuza, James Murphy, Cirque Éloize, Win Butler of Arcade Fire, and Moby.
• Blending influences and ideas:
C2 was created in Montréal, and that is no coincidence. Montréal mixes cultures and languages, bridges America and Europe, flirts with the old and the new. Much like this natural hub for creativity and innovation, C2 is a blend of influences, a cross between disciplines, a hybrid creature that pulls together divergent trends to turn them into exciting opportunities.
