After a brilliant first year in London in 2018, we are happy to announce that we will be bringing another new concept in 2018! Yes, in June we’ll hit downtown Toronto for our very first no slides conference! We're thrilled to bring our own take on a great conference experience to our wonderful Canadian audience. Expect a friendly, valuable and inspiring community event that will help web designers and developers alike, become better at what we do.

The main focus of the conference is to give new insight into how we can work together to solve current design problems or brainstorm workflow solutions! Use the experience of your fellow attendees and speakers to create new ideas or develop old thoughts and tasks. Two workshop days and two full conference days, neatly packed with practical talks on smart techniques, clever strategies, useful tools, as well as lots of learning, sharing and networking.

Smashing Conference Toronto 2018

The Smashing Conference is a four-day event for professional web designers and web developers, to be held in the beautiful TIFF in the heart of Downtown and just north of the water. We have invited outstanding, inspiring speakers, and workshop leaders who will make up a day full of stimulating, expert workshops.

We’d like to explore what works and doesn’t work in actual real-life projects. That’s why the conference will be focused on practical takeaways, workflows and hands-on insights. The goal is that every talk will deliver tangible, actionable points that we all will be able to learn from and use right away.

On Monday, June 25rd and Thursday, June 28th, we’ll host full-day workshops at the Ivey Tangerine Leadership Center. We’re also preparing a pre-conference-evening for attendees to meet before the event, with a range of talks by the attendees, so stay tuned for more information on that!

Tuesday and Wednesday are conference days, dedicated to high-quality talks by some of the most well-respected and talented experts in the industry. We always keep the friendly and informal atmosphere at our events, so grabbing a drink or coffee with a speaker won’t be an issue. A party in the evening will give you an opportunity to relax and network after a long first day.

The ticket sales start on Tuesday, November 17th, with the regular ticket price $699.00CAD — including all booking fees.

You can save $100 when purchasing both a conference ticket and a workshop. Student discounts (50% off) are available upon request as well.
