#BCTECH Summit Returns in 2017

A booming tech scene is not only transforming B.C.’s economy, but the lives of its citizens.

On March 14 – 15, the second #BCTECH Summit will showcase this transformation to an audience expected to number in the thousands.

“The tech industry continues to be a core driver for B.C.’s economy, and has grown by an impressive 14 per cent in the past two years,” says Shahrzad Rafati, founder and CEO, BroadbandTV, “Now is the perfect time for us to evolve beyond Silicon Valley of the North and collectively define who we are and what we stand for.”

Advances in the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, cleantech, and autonomous vehicles will all be on the agenda, along with keynote addresses from thought leaders such as Ben Parr, author of Captivology, and IBM.

“There is incredible innovation happening in British Columbia,” says Shirley Vickers, president and CEO, BC Innovation Council, “And the #BCTECH Summit will showcase global thought leadership and position our province as a beacon of transformative tech for the world to see.”
