Many lives have changed in the past 21 months and the tech community has managed to grow in the midst of it all. We're celebrating that success by coming together in person, paving the way for a great 2022, and giving back to our community through the VIATEC Foundation!

In addition to catching up with the community, we'll also reflect back on some top local tech headlines of the year and reveal the VIATEC Food Bank Challenge results!

This event will take place in the Empress Hotel’s Palm Court and Crystal Ballroom and will be a formal cocktail reception.
