On June 2nd, 2011, the VIATeC Technology Awards will celebrate the achievements of technology companies responsible for making Greater Victoria the fastest growing technology region in British Columbia.

They are given the opportunity to stand out in front of their peers for their great accomplishments achieved throughout the year.
