Last night, I talked to Justin Kozuch, the executive director of DesignFest ’05. DesignFest was a new media conference held in Toronto in October, and Justin has intention on holding this every year. So it turns out after all that there is a Canadian-based web design conference.
So my new question is two-fold. First, can (should) Canada support another web-design conference? If so, should it still be located in Toronto?
My first impression is that Canada can support another web conference, but that it would need to be be western-based. That being said, I’m not from Toronto, and not very familiar with the market there.
I’m interested in others’ thoughts on this.
