Join us for the Q3 2017 Kentico Partner Summit meeting on August 11th, 2017, and the pre-meeting activities the evening of August 10th. Our hosts will be Kentico Gold Partner, ecentricarts, at their office in Toronto and the main focus of the meeting will be on accessibility and website development. The final agenda is coming together nicely and we’re looking forward to a very collaborative event.

Below you will find information about flights, hotels, and the tentative agenda for the 11th, along with rough details of the Thursday pre-meeting dinner and baseball game. We look forward to seeing you soon!


There are two airports in Toronto; Pearson and Billy Bishop. If you are coming from major cities (NYC, Boston, Chicago, etc.) they might have the option to fly to Billy Bishop which is downtown and closer than Pearson.
