Ottawa, ON — CATAAllianceCanada’s One Voice for Innovation Lobby Group today issued a call to action to sponsors, award winners and delegates attending the 34th  Annual CATA Innovation Leadership Gala on Wednesday May 15th at Carleton University in Ottawa to use Periscope, Facebook Live & YouTube Live Stream to broadcast the Gala in real time to their Followers.

CATA CEO, John Reid, said, “ Today’s technology now allows you to “go live” via your smartphone from any location, at any time of the day or night, essentially giving all Gala delegates a broadcasting system in their pockets and purses. We get to explore the world through the eyes of somebody else.”

He, added, “ When our Master of Ceremonies for the Awards, Paul Brent, sets the stage for the Gala, I will also press the Record Button on CATA’s Live Stream and begin to broadcast in real time to thousand of CATA Followers across Canada and to the world at large who tune in using the URL provided at:

In addition, CATA will be conducting post event interviews with winners, sponsors and select delegates about what  the keys to their success and what they would like to see in Canada to improve the nation’s innovation and competitive rankings. The videos will be posted on CATA’s TECHNOW video channel reaching out to our network of three million viewers in Canada and across the Globe. Winners are also being asked to submit Op-Eds on topics of their choice to help fuel conversations on how to advance CATA’s Competitive innovation nation advocacy platform.

Reid, concluded “ In some respects, the Gala is a social network for drawing on the guidance and ideas of attendees where through video capture we stimutate thought leadership and best practice adoption.”

We invite the delegates at the awards event to broadcast their chosen parts of the Gala program and to encourage their followers to view the CATA live feed of the evening at this URL:
