Speakers and presenters come from among Canada, Columbia, Ghana, India, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Peru, Serbia, South Africa the United States. Donors and Non-Governmental Organizations are well-represented.

The third Monday in May is Victoria Day in Canada. The keynote presentation last year came from Ken Cochrane, the Chief Information Officer for the Government of Canada on the subject of service transformation.
