I’m particularly proud of this theme because it is in line with HUB Montréal’s DNA: exchanging and building relationships with professionals from around the world,” adds Sébastien Nasra, founder and executive director.

To embody this theme, Martin Tremblay, President and CEO of Solotech, is pleased to join the list of speakers.
