AccelerateAB 2020 postponed to 2021

Share this post

As large group restrictions remain in place for the foreseeable future, the AccelerateAB 2020 conference has been postponed until September 29-30, 2021. But don’t worry, your tickets are still valid!

The decision to postpone until 2021 is based on current available data and the fact that COVID-19 remains a top health concern around the world. The A100 and the team at AccelerateAB are disappointed we won’t see you this year, but public health and safety holds firm as our top priority. 

Taking a cue from plans implemented by major sports leagues, large concert venues, ongoing travel restrictions and projections regarding vaccine availability, we felt it prudent to move AccelerateAB to the fall of 2021. At that time, we will be ecstatic to welcome you back to Edmonton for in-person networking, top speakers and panel discussions, and a do-over of our 10-year anniversary festivities! 

We have put together a short FAQ below, but if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at

We look forward to seeing you in September 2021 in Edmonton as we resume our celebration of Alberta tech.


1. Will the September 29-30, 2021 conference still be in Edmonton?

Yes, AccelerateAB 2021 will still be held at the Edmonton Convention Centre. We didn’t have a chance this year to showcase the fantastic tech companies and our partner organizations in Edmonton, so we’re going to make sure it happens in 2021!

2. Have you considered a virtual conference?

AccelerateAB was established to facilitate collisions and relationship-building opportunities between early-stage and late-stage startups, angel investors, venture capitalists, service providers, government agencies, and more. We’re also physically showcasing exciting local Edmonton tech companies and programs, and offering special offsite events. We feel the conference best serves its purpose as an in-person, live experience.

3. Will my tickets be refunded?

All tickets purchased for AccelerateAB will automatically be transferred to the September 29-30, 2021 event.

4. Can I cancel and get a refund?
