As much as we don’t want to admit it, fall is basically here. Although we are over a week away from the first day of Autumn on September 22nd, Labour Day Weekend brought in a cooler climate, changing the leaves to yellow at an accelerated pace. On the bright side, pumpkin spice lattes are back at Starbucks and major tech companies are releasing shiny, new hardware updates, such as Apple’s keynote event in Cupertino, California, unveiling new fall iPhones, Apple Watches, and more.
The Passportal crew will be attending important events this fall, some of which we have never attended before. If you find yourself at any of these listed below, be sure to drop by the Passportal booth to engage in great conversations with our team. While you are there, enter for a chance to win one of our quirky draw-prizes specifically hand-picked by Passportal’s CEO, Colin Knox.
1) G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit | Buenos Aires, Argentina, September 20-21, 2018
Next week, Colin Knox will be flying to Buenos Aires for 10 days to participate in the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit (G20 YEA), an event Colin has never attended before. Each year, the G20 YEA brings together hundreds of young entrepreneurs to engage with G20 leaders discussing topics of entrepreneurship, innovation, and global change.
The G20 YEA is held in a different country every year. Last year, the summit was held in Berlin, Germany and Beijing, China in 2016. Fun fact, Canada held the G20 YEA Summit in Toronto 8 years ago in 2010.
The G20 YEA represents more than 500,000 young entrepreneurs worldwide, and is a collective of organizations across the jurisdictions of the G20. This event promotes youth entrepreneurship to drive the future of business - and Passportal is a part of that!

On November 6th, Passportal will be jetting to North Carolina to present our next Roadshow in Raleigh.
Passportal strongly advocates being involved in one-day conferences because any opportunity we get to network and spread our expert knowledge in data and cybersecurity, the more we will be able to help ITSPs protect themselves and their clients.
