#BCTECH Summit a New Peak For British Columbia’s Tech Scene
Melding Progressive Technology with Traditional Industries

The growth numbers don’t lie: British Columbia’s tech sector is outpacing the provincial economy, employing over 90,000 people who are earning wages 75% above the provincial average.

The upcoming #BCTECH Summit in March isn’t just about celebrating the strides that the tech industry has made in BC: it’s about laying out the future of this crucial industry.

Pat Horgan, VP, manufacturing, development and operations at IBM Canada, is one of many industry leaders who’ll be in attendance at #BCTECH, reinforcing the company’s committed presence in the region. “IBM is introducing advanced cognitive and cloud technologies in pivotal industries in BC and across Canada, including healthcare, financial services, and natural resources.”

JB Straubel, CTO and co-founder of Tesla Motors and Shahrzad Rafati, founder and CEO of BroadbandTV, are among the 200 thought leaders who’ll be speaking at the summit. #BCTECH speakers and panels will touch on technology’s growing role in traditional industries like forestry and mining, as well as entirely new sectors of job-creating innovation in AI, AR, the IoT, and beyond.

An Investment Showcase and organized B2B Meetings will round out the offerings at #BCTECH, the largest technology conference in the province.
