Psssst… Great Prizes at MagNet Square

Each day at lunch one lucky MagNeteer will win a prize courtesy of our sponsors. Drop your business card in the bowl in MagNet Square to win a Mophie wireless charging base courtesy of Reader’s Digest or an Amazon Echo Show courtesy of MagHub.

MagNet Square is THE place to network. Coffee breaks, buffet lunches, receptions, awards and, of course, the Marketplace exhibitors will all be in this one lively spot! Receptions and coffee breaks are complimentary, but you must register for the delicious buffet lunches. Don’t worry, you can do this on site if you haven’t registered for the lunches yet.

Representatives from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Ontario Media Development Corporation will each have a table in MagNet Square. Come out and meet the funders to discuss their programs and ask your questions.
