It doesn't take more than a glance at our changing skyline to know that billions of dollars in public and private investments are pouring into Toronto and the surrounding Greater Golden Horseshoe region. These investments are being mirrored by booms in both the technology sector and the regional population, offering a rare opportunity to harness change to build functional cities and an inclusive economy. This will be the main focus in next month's CityAge: Toronto event, a global conference bringing together industry and municipal leaders for discussions and seminars on city building.

The event boats an impressive list of guests including municipal leaders in the region including Toronto Mayor John Tory and Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic, leaders in the architecture and design communties including Claire Weisz, Founder at WXY architecture + urban design and Nille Juul-Sorensen, Director of Architecture at ARUP, and key figures in the development world like President and CEO of First Gulf Corporation, David Gerofsky.
