2023 VIATEC Community Awards
2023 VIATEC Community Awards
Thursday, November 30, 2023 (5:00 PM - 10:00 PM) (PST)
The VIATEC Community Awards will take place November 30th in Carson Hall at the Victoria Conference Centre, 720 Douglas Street.
For over 22 years, the event has been produced by VIATEC, Victoria’s tech industry association, and known as the VIATEC Awards. The Gala has been a great success and considered a favourite event within the tech community and visiting guests alike.
Building on this success, VIATEC has engaged with other local tech-focused organizations to gain insights into how the event can most meaningfully evolve. These organizations include:
- iWIST (Island Women in Science and Technology)
- The Coast Capital Innovation Centre (UVic’s on-campus venture incubator)
- CIN (Capital Investment Network)
- Women’s Equity Lab
- Alacrity Canada
The awards brings the tech community together to connect with each other and take a moment to spotlight and celebrate some of the year’s most notable companies and individuals within Victoria’s $4 billion tech sector. This year the coalition is aiming to increase inclusivity and ensure that the broader tech community knows that they ‘belong’ even if they are not ‘members’ of one organization or another. Any Victoria tech company is welcome to nominate.
The coalition worked together to update and refine the award categories and recipients will now be chosen by either a panel of delegates from the coalition or audience polling at the event itself.
Join us for an evening of rocket-fuelled entertainment, celebration, networking and more fun than grown-ups are used to!
