On September 30, in Ottawa, the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATAAlliance) is partnering with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and the Canadian Interoperable Technology Interest Group (CITIG) to offer Industry Day: a series of private group meetings linking leading members of the ICT vendor community with a panel of public safety agents to reflect on the Canadian Community Safety Information Management Strategy (CCSIMS).

The CCSIMS is designed to leverage people, processes and technology to get the right information to the right people at the right time in support of a broad community safety information sharing environment.

Following Industry Day, on October 1-2, approximately 20 - 25 public safety agents will be meeting in camera to refine the current CCSIMS and invite industry feedback into the data and technology planks while also promoting innovative solutions to address current and future needs of the Canadian public safety information management community.

A private dinner for sponsors and workshop attendees is also being offered on the evening of September 30th.

To obtain one of the Industry Day meetings, companies must be a sponsor of the CACP ICT Workshop - more details found here:

Sponsoring the CACP ICT Workshop offers supporters a "two for one" deal that also includes sponsorship of the CCSIMS Industry Day.

Depending on Sponsorship levels, a company could receive:

  • 10 minute Google Hangout Interview facilitated by Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA) and posted on YouTube
  • 15 Minute Speaking Opportunity at the CACP ICT Workshop in Vancouver
  • Opportunity to be a panel member for the Town Hall Session at the CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop (approximately 1.5 hours) on Wednesday, February 25th, 2016
  • Your company logo on prominent signage at CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop
  • Opportunity to provide one promotional item to be distributed to delegates attending the CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop
  • Your company logo will appear prominently in the final CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop program
  • Plenary session acknowledgement with logo at the CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop
  • Complimentary full page advertisement (premium location) in the final CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop program
  • Access to the delegate list (unless the delegate requests confidentiality) one month, and two weeks, prior to the CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop (once payment received)
  • Three complimentary workshop registrations for the CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop for selected members of your staff
  • Space for a 8x10 exhibit display for the CACP ICT (Vancouver) Workshop for the duration of the tradeshow

Note: Sponsorship of the Industry Day session is offered as an incentive and bonus for those companies that become official ICT Workshop sponsors before Industry Day takes place. As the CACP did not increase the cost of sponsorship from the 2014 workshop, sponsors of the 2016 Workshop who do not have an opportunity to present during Industry Days are still receiving the fullest comparable value for their contribution and as such no other discounts nor substitutions are being offered.

Please consider supporting our efforts to improve community safety information management in Canada by becoming a sponsor today!
