Other guest speakers include Justin Kingsley, VP, strategy at Sid Lee; Brian Wong, Canadian founder of social gaming company Kiip; and Sidneyeve Matrix, a Queen's University media professor whose focus is targeting youth on campus.

The final submission deadline for the Regional Design Awards (the Reggies) is March 2, 2012. Among the 14 categories are Print Editorial, Typography, Web Design and Mobile Design.
