Later this month, tech giants and industry leaders from around the world will gather in Toronto to attend North America’s fastest-growing tech conference.

Now in its sixth year, Collision was created by the team behind Web Summit, the world’s largest tech event. Collision attracts CEOs of the world’s largest companies, founders of exciting startups, leading investors, and media from more than 120 countries.

This year, the conference is taking place at Toronto’s Enercare Centre from May 20 to 23 and is expected to host over 25,000 attendees—just last week, the event announced it has reached capacity.

If you’re in town for the massive conference, odds are you’re going to spend your days working up an appetite.
