For the first time, #BCTECHSummit is expanding its popular technology forum from Vancouver into Surrey, representing the rapidly emerging tech sector across other parts of B.C.
“Surrey is where business happens through its innovation and entrepreneurship. Surrey will be the largest city in B.C. very soon. The Surrey Board of Trade is proud to work together with Surrey’s Health and Technology District in supporting the #BCTECHSummit’s first South Fraser networking event in Surrey,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.
Recognized as Western Canada’s largest annual innovation event, #BCTECHSummit will complement its three-day Vancouver technology conference with a networking event hosted by the Health and Technology District in Surrey. The 2019 #BCTECHSummit will explore how we use emerging technologies – from AI to Robotics, Quantum to Cleantech, Blockchain to AR/VR – to solve the biggest challenges facing BC and the world today.
Surrey’s Tech@NIGHT at the Health and Technology District is an after-hours mixed-reality networking experience focused on entrepreneurs, innovators and techies from B.C.’s extended innovation ecosystem. The evening event will feature mixed-reality entertainment featuring LED robots, VR artists, and more. The District features leading-edge technology-based companies like Safe Software, Conquer Experience, Stambol Studios, HealthTech Connex, just to name a few.
Surrey’s Tech@NIGHT at the Health and Technology District is supported by Accenture, the Surrey Board of Trade, the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association, and Colliers International Canada.
