Successful #BCTECHSummit Capped Off With Best Techfest Yet

Nearly 3,000 people from across BC hit the Vancouver Convention Centre this week to take part in the inaugural #BCTech Summit.

According to organizers, 600 students took part in a career showcase and coding workshop; 40 BC tech companies pitched to more than 100 international and local investors; and 250 facilitated business-to-business meetings were scheduled during the conference.

The Summit was anchored by the formal launch of Premier Christy Clark’s BC Tech Strategy, and capped off Tuesday night with the biggest Techfest ever.

The #BCTech Summit will return in 2017.
