In celebration of our 40th anniversary delivering IT in BC, Avocette is a proud Sponsor of the upcoming #BCTECH Summit 2017 at the Vancouver Convention Centre from March 14th – 15th. Presented by the BC Innovation Council and the provincial government, the #BCTECH Summit “is the largest technology conference in British Columbia showcasing the province’s vibrant technology industry.”

The #BCTECH Summit will give attendees a deep look at how technology is innovating traditional industries, and the latest ideas and innovations fueling the BC economy.

This event is an extraordinary opportunity to gather BC’s entire tech ecosystem together. As Lindsay Chan, Director of the #BCTECH Summit and of Events for the BC Innovation Council explained to Geekwire, “the #BCTECH Summit brings together tech entrepreneurs, anchor companies, business leaders from traditional industries, investors, government and academia to establish new connections and to exchange fresh ideas and innovation to drive business growth.” It is also a place for people to discuss and investigate the solutions to major industry challenges provided by the tech industry.

There are more than 200 speakers slated to be at the two-day conference, providing attendees with a wealth of opportunity to hear provocative global thought leaders share fresh ideas and engaging stories.

Pre-summit events will be held on Monday March 13th, with #BCTECH on the Terrace open to the public from 5:00pm – 8:00pm on the Pacific West Terrace at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The lighting of the Olympic Cauldron at Jack Poole Plaza will officially kick-off the event as a celebration of the technology used to build the cauldron for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

Last year’s inaugural event sold out. This year promises to be even bigger and, if it’s possible, better. See you there!
