Recently we presented at an event put on by the Consumer Technology Association, on Parliament Hill. That’s right, GPD on Parliament Hill! We don’t often associate consumer technology with government but we were pleased to be invited to represent industrial design’s role in this industry. Attending this event allowed us to participate in discussions with Canadian politicians who are trying to both understand and help the tech community. Furthermore, this event was organized by a U.S. association and showed just how connected we are to our southern neighbors and how valued our collective progress really is.
