Data is the world’s most powerful asset. Any business, organization and government must use data to accelerate digital transformation or fall behind. On November 27th, The Data Effect returns to Vancouver for its tenth edition. The conference will address how Vancouver, British Columbia and Canada can be a centre for global innovation in the data driven economy.

CityAge is a platform for business development founded on the idea that a neutral, flexible and focused set of high-powered conversations will help us build the future. CityAge has held 35 editions in major urban markets across North America, Europe and Asia, ranging in size from 150 to 500 leaders. More than 5,000 executives and thought leaders in investment, construction, design, government, research and society have attended CityAge and are now in the CityAge network.
