Montreal, April 24
There’s a lot more to C2-MTL than the obvious attraction of star speakers like Sir Richard Branson, architect and designer Philippe Starck, supermodel/entrepreneur Elle MacPherson, and prestigious thinkers/doers like Neri Oxman of the MIT Media Lab. With 90 percent of tickets to C2-MTL’s 2013 edition now sold, it’s safe to say there will be as much star power in the audience as there will be on stage.
