If you’ve been seeing billboards around Toronto showing the OVO and RBC logos, you’re not alone.

While the billboards have been up for over a week, the companies finally announced the reason why.

And no, it’s not an OVO credit card.

According to RBC, they are working on a new collaboration with global lifestyle brand October’s Very Own (OVO).

“Together, RBC and OVO will partner to open the popular OVO Summit to the Canadian public for the first time,” states the announcement.

Taking place on Friday, August 2, 2019, OVO Summit is described as an immersive conference for Canadian creatives and lifestyle entrepreneurs looking to grow their careers, hone their skills and make a lasting impact on the creative economy in Canada.
