Virtual conference and event branding: AIxSPACE

Virtual conference and event branding: AIxSPACE

Background  

In 2018, Innovitech identified an untapped niche sector with high potential: artificial intelligence applied to the space industry. Several large companies are beginning to integrate this technology into their development and applications are emerging such as autonomous decision making, medical assistance for astronauts, anomaly detection, etc., but the bridges between the two industries are lacking. For this reason, Innovitech decided to partner with Euroconsult to create AIxSPACE, the very first AI event dedicated to space in Canada. 

At the beginning of 2019, Heko-Innovitech’s event, marketing and communications team launched the strategic planning and design of this new major event in Canada that will hold its first edition in June 2020 in Montreal. The team is in charge of creating a new brand and graphic identity, building the communication strategy and its execution, planning and managing all logistical aspects of the event. 

 In May 2020, the team decided to postpone the event to 2021 and to switch to 100% virtual to adapt to the challenges posed by the pandemic.
