🤯 20+ upcoming events to attend
Plus, check out our new events calendar — the only one you'll need.
Good afternoon! Welcome to this week’s events briefing, brought to you by Switchboard.
📅 It’s time to bookmark our new central events calendar
There’s been such a proliferation of new events happening every week that it’s getting hard to keep track of them all. So we were thinking that perhaps our weekly email isn’t enough. Maybe we need to create an online events page for our readers. Somewhere they can bookmark, revisit anytime, and share with friends, colleagues, and clients.
Earlier this week, we stopped thinking and started doing, and we launched events.vantechjournal.com. With more than 20 upcoming activities already featured, we think it’ll soon become the only events calendar you’ll need.
We plan to upgrade the page in the future, both functionally and aesthetically. But for now, we hope it can at least serve its core purpose—to keep you updated about all the interesting activities happening across the city’s innovation ecosystem. Let us know what you think, and, of course, send us your events to email@example.com

With a smart, collaborative approach to private and public data, we can fast-track solutions to climate change, social inequity, health research, and more. But what are the tools and skills needed to achieve this?
On June 3, you’re invited to The Data Effect: How to Build a Digital Society where experts will explore that very question.
Speakers are from organizations like HSBC, Republic of Estonia, SFU, Vancity, and more.
