Demographics and Entrepreneurship were the main focus of the recent Virox Future Forum 2011 hosted by the Sheridan Faculty of Business and created and sponsored by Randy Pilon, President CEO, Virox Technologies Inc.

Absolut Vodka, for example, created an apocalypse themed art bar for their customers in Hong Kong and then marketed videos of the event.A more Canadian example might be Molson Coors Brewing Co.
