BC Tech Association’s Events
At BC Tech, we pride ourselves on being able to host high-quality events that bring the community together to learn, make connections, build relationships, and help tech companies grow.
Whether we’re teaching entrepreneurs during a lunch n’ learn or celebrating with 1,000 industry leaders at the Technology Impact Awards, BC Tech offers world-class events with one vision in mind: To make BC the best place to grow a tech company.Check out our events calendar to find a great tech event near you.
The BC Tech Association has developed a series of C-Councils, groups in which technology CEOs and C-level executives can share insights, key learnings, and challenges – with a goal of building better businesses. Unlike other CEO forums or executive roundtables, the content is all business.
British Columbia boasts one of the most vibrant startup ecosystems in the world. Our goal is to provide deep and meaningful accelerator programs for Growth stage companies to create the next Hootsuite, Global Relay, and MDA. We provide education from experienced coaches, connectivity to the best partners and investors, and we drive accountability and focus through intensive cohort programs.
Grub in The Hub
Learning over lunch.
Designed for busy tech community members, Grub in The Hub offers bite-sized (pun intended!) information on useful day-to-day topics ranging from sales and marketing to ‘selecting the right benefits program for your growing team’ and delivers it for free during the lunch hour. Grub in the Hubs are FREE events that occur on select Fridays at 12:00 pm. Pizza is provided and attendees are encouraged to eat while they learn. To find the next Grub in the Hub, see our Events Calendar.
Meet your next hire.
Talent Days bring together select groups of hiring companies and top-notch candidates with the goal of promoting meaningful connections (and hopefully many hires!). These intimate, casual, innovative and fun events give companies an opportunity to meet with pre-qualified candidates on a one-to-one setting through speed interviews, pitches, or networking. For upcoming Talent Days, visit our Events Calendar.
The Ultimate Tech Mega-Mixer.
One of our most popular events, TechBrew brings together the coolest new technologies, cutting-edge innovators and influential decision makers, all under one roof.
Join fellow members of the BC tech community, including investors, top talent and local service providers for an evening of inspiration, networking… and beer! Stay tuned for more information on our next TechBrew!
Technology Impact Awards
Celebrating the best of the BC Tech Sector.
Founded in 1994 by BC Tech, the Technology Impact Awards celebrate the successes of our industry and the companies, people and innovation that continue to put British Columbia on the map. Every year, applications are received from across the province. Companies of all sizes and from every sector are encouraged to apply.
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day
