Where connections become customers, collaborators or colleagues
With the #BCTECH Summit less than THREE months away, here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect to see in our almost sold-out Marketplace! Whether you’re an industry leader, an entrepreneur with a groundbreaking new product, a non-tech business using technology or an investor looking to support the newest B.C. tech stars, there is something for everyone.
Start your day in the South Foyer. From the moment you arrive, you will be blown away by the ground-breaking innovations and the people developing them. Take time to explore this area which brings together entrepreneurs and post-secondary institutions breaking out of their boxes, and learn more about the great work happening across industries – with a big cup of locally roasted coffee in hand.
Next, step into the 50,000 sf Marketplace – the largest showcase of innovation in B.C.! Enter through the Reality Zone presented by our Title Sponsor – Microsoft, and let the conversations flow. An open format means no walking up and down aisles to meet change-makers and breakthrough innovators who are driving the growth of our vibrant ecosystem.
Tech intersects life. B.C. has a dynamic history of life sciences, biotech organizations and deep research developing products and creating usable data that is changing lives for the better. This year we will again have an excellent selection of companies you can meet at the Health Hub.
Our showcase of innovation expands beyond walls. The West Foyer features two fantastic Summit components. First, the Research Runway presented by YVR, and new this year, the Funding Foyer. Imagine a space where you can meet and hear from government and non-government funders who can provide your organizations with deep and broad opportunities including investments in innovations, grants for co-op placements and research funding. You may be surprised at how you can accelerate growth, find routes to global markets, and rest easier knowing there is funding to support you.
Pace your visit on the show floor. You never know who you will meet!
