What is Discover Tectoria?
Just the biggest tech event in the city!
With the help and support of its members, VIATeC hosted Discover Tectoria 2011 on December 8th, a one-day exposition of more than 70 Greater Victoria technology firms and research agencies... all spread throughout two floors of interactive technology.
Previously known as "Island Tech", this biennial event consistently draws as many as 3,500 attendees.
This important event continues to raise awareness of the overall sector and the individual companies within it and plays a key role in the added attention and recognition the local tech sector has started to enjoy. This awareness is crucial when attracting new staff and investors while also ensuring that policy makers at every level appreciate the economic impact and importance of the local innovation economy.
