What They're Saying.
Fireside Conference has the most dedicated and passionate alumni. Here is what a few of them have to say about the experience.
Fireside Conference lives by its motto. We really did disconnect to connect. I was able to have conversations with so many amazing influencers from our community I probably wouldn't have connected with otherwise. It's an amazing opportunity to bring people together, and spark conversations and relationships that will help grow this amazing tech community we all love so much!
The Working Group (TWG)
Fireside is one of a kind; it's the only conference you can really turn complete strangers into friends. If you want to be well integrated into the Toronto tech community, definitely consider Fireside next year!
Fireside was one of those unique experiences that makes you forget the day-to-day and reflect on the bigger picture. There are no phones, no egos, and no inhibitions. It's a place to meet new people, have great conversations, and get reminded about what really matters while staring at the stars...My favourite event of the year!

About Fireside Conference
Fireside Conference is an annual off the grid and all-inclusive retreat for startups, founders, entrepreneurs, investors and thought leaders. It takes place at a summer camp in the middle of nowhere between Toronto and Ottawa on a beautiful 750+ acre green-space with a pristine private lake.
We host speaker sessions around campfires while roasting marshmallows and discussing ideas that change the world. It’s a transformational experience for all attendees. The entire camp is open to attendees to experience the great outdoors as well – waterskiing, canoe/kayak/sailing, ropes courses and all kinds of land/court sports.
Our focus is person-to-person relationships. As such, unlike most conferences, we turn off our digital devices to detox for the weekend so our delegates can “disconnect to connect.”
