10th annual VIATeC Awards a success in Tectoria
Friday, June 3, 2011
Last night, the annual VIATeC Awards attracted over 500 guests to recognize standouts in Victoria's, or shall we say Tectoria's, thriving tech scene. In its tenth year, the lively event was a great forum to roll out the re-branding of the city to Tectoria, acknowledging Greater Victoria as the fastest growing technology region in BC. The Tectoria campaign is making a big splash with ads at the Victoria International Airport and a new home at www.welcometotectoria.ca. Congrats to all the winners and nominees and to VIATeC for putting on a great show!
