Victoria Advanced Technology Council’s 2014 awards — the 13th installment of the annual event — boasts a record number of finalists, with VIATeC announcing 49 companies and individuals in 10 different categories.
The awards celebrate the achievements of technology companies responsible for making Greater Victoria the fastest growing technology region in B.C. The awards provide well-deserved recognition for some of Victoria’s most innovative firms and a great opportunity for the local technology community to gather and celebrate each other’s successes.
VIATeC also announced that Owen Matthews will receive the Colin Lennox Award for Technology Champion and that the VIATeC Member of the Year award will go to Limbic Media.
Winners will be presented at a gala evening June 20 at the Victoria Conference Centre. Last year’s gala saw a record-breaking crowd celebrating the tech winners and the evening morphed into a “distributed dance party,” a sound and light promenade of nearly 1,000 gala attendees and dance party aficionados, who worked their way through the downtown core, moving from the awards gala to the Legislature and then on to the after-party at Club 9one9.
