The GCM Colloquium and Business Plan Expo is scheduled to run in downtown Toronto on April 3, 2018.

Students of Ryerson University’s School of Graphic Communications Management are preparing to host the program’s annual GCM Colloquium on April 3, 2018, at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly Maple Leaf Gardens) in Toronto.

This year’s GCM Colloquium also includes a Business Plan Expo component, creating a larger networking event for GCM students and members of Canada’s printing industry. This combination is reflected in the 2018 event’s name, Evolve: Startups, Mergers & Acquisitions in the Graphic Arts Industry.

The Business Plan Expo is scheduled to run from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm, while the Colloquium is scheduled for 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.


The GCM Colloquium is organized by student volunteers featuring keynote addresses, a panel discussion, and an information reception. This year’s industry participants include Jay Mandarino of C.J. Graphics Inc., Deanne Sinclair of Cambridge Label Inc., and Peter Tran and Rhodi Iliadou of Equal Parts Studio.

GCM’s Business Plan Expo is organized around new business ideas being presented by more 140 graduating students. This includes the opportunity for industry members to speak with the students and see interactive demonstrations of their business ideas.
