Pouria Ghods has never been happier to feel jetlagged.

Ghods was a little groggy during his early afternoon interview with Techopia, and for good reason. The co-founder of Ottawa cleantech firm Giatec Scientific had just arrived back on Canadian soil two hours earlier, after catching a red-eye flight home from Las Vegas, where he’d attended the World of Concrete trade show.

Even though only about 25,000 people showed up this year due to the pandemic – far below the typical attendance tally of 70,000 or more – Ghods said it was still worth it to endure weather-delayed flights and seemingly endless rounds of COVID testing to get there and back.
