Largest SVTC Event Of The Year with High Visibility
Tech Nite is the largest annual technology event in the Valley and will take place on Wed, Oct. 18, 2023. We will gather at the JMU Festival Center for some of the best tech networking, dinner, a keynote, and the announcement of the winners. (Reservations will open, and sponsorships will be available, starting in the late summer 2023.)
During Tech Nite, approx. 275 attendees honor and recognize the technology innovators of the area. Tech users and creators -educators, leaders, developers, entrepreneurs, et al- attend, network with each other, and celebrate the innovative companies and organizations in the region. The recognition helps organizations and individuals immensely — the winning organization is able to expand its network, attract employees, and obtain publicity inside and often outside of the local region.
To amp up the fun factor, one of our awards allows voting by the public! We will use a special hashtag #SVTCPC23 to vote! All nominees are eligible to win in this category, and a special place (called a social wall) will be available to cast a public vote. We will also collect public votes cast on Twitter and Instagram. The PCA category is another chance for each nominee to win an award. Voting details: How to Vote for the Serco People’s Choice Award
