Industry Leaders to Converge at #BCTECH Summit in March

The #BCTech Summit is back and looking good, with keynotes from Tesla cofounder JB Straubel and Watson GM Beth Smith.

Hosted by the BC Innovation Council and the Government of BC, the #BCTECH Summit is two days of important conversation and revelations around how tech is redefining the way we work and play, and is providing critical solutions to major industry challenges.

BC’s tech sector is growing at a faster rate than the provincial economy, employing more than 92,700 people at wages 75% higher than the average province-wide.

“#BCTECH Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from highly successful and influential tech industry leaders with valuable insights into their successes in the tech marketplace,” said Honourable Amrik Virk, Minister of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services.

“We’re absolutely thrilled about this year’s #BCTECH Summit, which will feature over 200 high-caliber speakers,” said Carl Anderson, CEO, BC Innovation Council. “It’s no wonder that we’re attracting attention from around the world to attend B.C.’s biggest tech event.”

The #BCTECH Summit takes place on March 14-15, 2017 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. And, just like last year, there will be a Techfest held during the summit.
