Here’s a to-do list to help you understand need-to-know information between now and the event launch:
Here are all the details to help you understand the structure of the Movin’On Summit plus tips to optimize your event experience.
Not only are the Concierges Extraordinaires equipped to recommend activities relevant to you, help you navigate the platforms, give you insider tips and answer all your questions, but they can also help you plan your stay, recommend restaurants and take in city sights. Let them lend their expertise in all things event- and city-related.
How to reach us:
You can contact your Concierge Extraordinaire through your participant portal homepage at any time. Otherwise, you can always send the team an email at email@example.com.
Before the event:
Starting in April, your Concierge Extraordinaire will reach out via email to personalize your experience. You can schedule a call or continue to communicate with them through messaging.
Let them know what you hope to do at Movin’On Summit so that they can better guide you. Are you looking for a fresh perspective on an industry? wanting to meet interesting new people to collaborate with? Wanting to get out of your comfort zone and get the creative juices flowing?
Our platforms are built to be user-friendly, however, our Concierges Extraordinaires have received extensive training to learn to navigate and optimize their roles. We recommend scheduling a call with them so they can walk you through them and answer any questions you have along the way.
Whether or not you are from Montreal, our team can help recommend places and activities around the city. At the Movin’On Summit, we pride ourselves on staying up to date with all the new hotspots around the city, not to mention we have a former Clefs d’Or leading our team. Let us help you plan your next coffee date, business lunch, or evening out.
During the event:
The Concierge Extraordinaire team will present throughout the event. Spot them throughout the site due to their distinctive outfits but know that you can always be sure to find them at one of our two information kiosks. We are there to offer on the spot recommendations, help you navigate the site and answer all of your questions.
Pro tip: Early is on time. Our activities are in high demand so be sure to arrive early as we give folks in the “Last-minute Lineup” a chance if reserved spots aren’t there at the start of the activity. We feel the need to mention this as we know how easy it is to talk a few minutes more during an interesting braindate or how the sudden urge for a coffee sometimes manifests itself.
After the event:
We’d love to hear from you. Let us know about your experience or if you have any remaining questions by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First, figure out what activities you’d like to attend and find out where they’re happening. Below is a description of each type of activity including its location.
Pro-tip: You’ll be able to register for every activity through klik. Keep your eyes peeled for an email, and on your News Feed in your participant portal, announcing that registration is open on klik. Register (very) quickly for your top picks — capacity is limited and venues tend to fill up fast.
Talks are stories pertaining to a larger theme (Solutions for multimodal ecosystems) told by innovators from all walks of life, whose mission is to make you see things differently and motivate you to bring about positive change.
Where? In the Forum and the Cabaret.
When? Every day, from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
Quota: Choose two per day, plus the opening talk on the first day.
Working sessions allow participants to dive deeper into the content through innovative ideation methods. They invite you to think, learn and do.
Quota: Two over the three days.
Where? Studios A, B, C, D and E — all located next to the Forum.
When? June 4 from 11 am to 5 pm, June 5 from 8:45 am to 5 pm and June 6 from 8:45 am to noon.
Labs are unique learning experiences taking place in atypical environments designed to throw participants off-guard and create the ideal conditions for new thought patterns to emerge. In these experimental ideation spaces, participants are encouraged to get out of their comfort zones to fully experience thought-provoking activities.
Why? To brainstorm and learn while outside of your comfort zone.
Where? Various venues throughout the Hangar, the Atrium and the Hall.
When? June 4 from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm, June 5 from 8 am to 6 pm and June 6 from 8 am to 12:30 pm.

Braindates are about sharing knowledge and learning from others at the Movin’On Summit. Post braindate topics about the knowledge that you can offer, and send invitations to others so you can learn from their experiences. You’ll book these meaningful conversations in advance through klik, and they’ll take place in-person either one-on-one (30 minutes), or in small groups (45 minutes). Be bold: share braindate topics related to both your passions and your quest to meet others who share these interests.
To know more, watch this video: bit.ly/meetbraindate.
Why? To tap into the knowledge of the other participants, and share your own. Make meaningful connections with passionate people.
Where? A few minutes before your braindate, check in at the Braindate Lounge, located in the Hangar.
When? June 4 from 10:30 am to 6 pm, June 5 from 8 am to 6 pm and June 6 from 8 am to 1 pm.
Your badge is the physical form of your pass. If you haven’t obtained your badge before the event (see section: Get your accreditation before the event), you will be able to pick it up at the Movin’On Summit site. When you first arrive, our staff will provide you with the badge assigned to your name. FYI: We sometimes refer to badges as accreditation. Your accreditation (or badge, remember?) grants you access to the site and all of its activities.
Klik is the technology embedded in your badge, providing you with your personal event profile, allowing you to create your own schedule, see all the programming, schedule braindates and acts as a networking platform to help you swap contact info with other participants.
Starting early May, you will be able to access klik via your participant portal, which will be linked to your badge. You will then have access to one or more of the following features:
On klik, you can browse the event programming, bookmark what piques your interest and register for activities. Then, on-site, the badge serves as an access card for every activity you have reserved a spot in.
Note: Bookmarking activities and creating braindate topics happens before activity-reservation opens in May. Bookmarking is simply a way to flag activities of interest to you. In May, you will create your schedule by reserving your spot in your bookmarked activities and booking the braindate topics that interest you most. Sections 1 and 2 (below) explain how to do both steps.
Once klik is integrated to your participant profile, you should start bookmarking activities so that you can reserve them later when activity-reservation opens. For activities that are at full capacity, bookmarking it will allow you to see it on your schedule so that you can attempt the “Last-minute Lineup” onsite.
Pro tip: It’s usually worthwhile to take this chance even when the activity appears full on klik.
Once you’ve bookmarked your activities, it’s time to create at least one braindate topic. Braindates help you meet and share knowledge with other interesting participants. Forget the awkward ice-breakers and small talk and dive right into a topic that interests you. Create braindates to meet one-on-one or as a group.
To access klik and bookmark activities:
1. Click My Schedule. Familiarize yourself with the schedule under the Event Schedule tab. Browse all calendars, search by type of activity and even add a filter (e.g., Theme: Decarbonization and air quality). Note that these filters will continue to apply until you remove them.
2. Bookmark the activities that interest you so that you can easily find them again through My Schedule. This gives you an overview of your tentative schedule so you can start creating braindate topics.
To create a braindate topic
1. Once on klik, you can click on the conversation bubbles to get an overview of the topics that already exist in the braindate market.
2. Click Go to Braindate.
3. Once on Braindate, click + to create a topic and select one of two options:
To bookmark a braindate:
1. Once you’ve created your braindate topic(s), go to the market to see the list of topics other participants have created. Note: You can filter by one-on-one or group braindate, as well as by tag or keyword.
2. If you see a topic that interests you but have yet to build your schedule, click the star to save the topic for later.
3. Once you’re ready, access your list of favourite topics to send invitations (or join a group braindate) to the participants whose topics interest you.
Activity reservation will open in May so stay tuned for the exact date.
To reserve activities:
You will then see a green check mark, indicating you that your spot in the activity is officially reserved.
Note 1: You can reserve two talks or panels per day, as well as two working sessions and two labs for the duration of the event. The opening talk is open to everyone — no need to reserve. Simply bookmark it and you will be reminded before it starts.
Note 2: Even if you respect the quotas described above, you won’t be able to reserve your spot for more than one activity at a time.
Pro tip: You can always try your luck in the “Last-minute Lineup” if you can’t decide on just one.
To schedule a braindate:
*The smart badge and its online platform are developed by PixMob. The cashless technology is provided by Connect&GO.
After participating in one of our inspiring talks and/or experimental labs, just “klik” your badge with a fellow participant’s badge to exchange each other’s coordinates.

1. Access your klik timeline.
A. For a .vcf file: Go to the Contacts card and click Export contact
B. For a .xls file: Go to the Networking tab

We highly recommend picking up your accreditation before the event starts to ensure you don’t waste valuable time waiting in line on your first day. To jump the queue, here is an off-site location where you can pick up your badge in advance:
355 Rue Ste-Catherine O., 5th Floor
Pro tip: When should you arrive? And Why should you arrive early? Your best bet is to arrive at your activity’s welcome area 30-45 minutes beforehand. This ensures that all registered participants are accounted for and can be seated prior to the start of the activity. If you’re not registered but still want to try to get in, it’s extra important that you show up early.
Note: We will not admit any latecomers once an activity is underway.
