Entrepreneurs, businesses, and startups will be in Vancouver en masse next week for #BCTECH Summit where the Kootenays will see more representation than ever!
We are so proud of the fact that the Kootenays are going to be taking this year’s #BCTECH Summit by storm, showcasing and promoting how technology and innovation have taken hold throughout the region.
In preparation for Kootenay record attendance, KAST is proud to be co-sponsoring the Kootenay House with the Columbia Basin Trust, the Nelson and Area Economic Development Partnership (NAEDP) and Lower Columbia Initiatives Corporation (Metal Tech Alley).
The House will feature 5 Kootenay businesses in a custom geodesic dome for the duration of the conference: Rossland based ThoughtExchange; Cronometer from Revelstoke; Pixel Cents out of Nelson; Kodiak Measurement Services and Selkirk College from Nelson and Castlegar, respectively; and the new Columbia Lake Technology Center from Canal Flats.
Identify yourself to KAST as a proud Kootenarian and we’ll get you a #Kootenaytech T-shirt and drink tickets for the Kootenay House Party so you can share how awesome the Kootenays are with other attendees.
Be sure to join us for the Kootenay House Party – Tuesday, March 12, 5-7pm at Kootenay House
Attendees of the conference can attend the Kootenay House Party on Tuesday, March 12 at 5-7pm. Join KAST plus over 40 Kootenay technology companies attending the summit this year—for a special “Eat & Greet” featuring complimentary appetizers, Kootenay craft beers, swag, and music! Look for proud Kootenarians sporting their #Kootenaytech t-shirts and discover why they think the Kootenays is the best place to live, work, study and play!
