The Region of Durham’s Economic Development and Tourism division (Invest Durham), along with partners, attended one of the largest and fastest growing technology conferences in North America—Collision Conference—from June 26 to 29, 2023 at the Enercare Centre in Toronto.
The Invest Durham booth had a memorable presence. Project Arrow, the first all-Canadian, zero emission connected vehicle was the centrepiece of the pavilion. This helped demonstrate that Durham Region is the Clean Energy Capital of Canada and is a great place to invent, engineer and test clean, connected and electric technologies.
A branded notebook with a fully custom inside and outside cover that reinforced this message and reminded attendees of their experience at the booth was distributed at the conference.
The custom notebook achieved the following objectives:
Standard pre-made options available from suppliers were not able to meet the need of printing on both sides of the cover. To overcome this challenge, a local print vendor was engaged in the project who had the ability to assemble notebooks in-house, which allowed for printing on both sides of the cover. A blank sample was provided for review of the quality and size prior to ordering.
Collision is a sustainable conference and discourages the use of single-page flyers and non-recyclable items. The notebooks were designed to be compact at 4” x 5.75” to keep materials to a minimum and were made from recyclable paper. Plastic-free pens made from recycled paper and cornstarch were available for attendees alongside the notebooks.
