Discover Tectoria is an exposition of more than 75 Greater Victoria tech firms and research agencies... under ONE roof. It's one of the only events where locals and visitors come together to discover the innovation that's stemming from right here in Victoria. Attendees get to interact with the people and their creations to better understand who and what is driving Victoria's largest industry... leading to potential careers, connections or just an appreciated knowledge. VIATEC created this event to open the eyes of potential employees, investors and policy makers to the vibrancy and potential of the local tech scene... not to mention inspiring tomorrow's inventors.

INTERESTED IN SPONSORSHIP?

While having a booth at the Island's biggest tech expo is great (3,617 attendees last year), what you're really buying is an elevated presence, connection and meaning with the tech sector.

Sponsoring Discover Tectoria will raise your profile with key tech decision makers, VIATEC members and the broader community. This is your way to demonstrate your support and interest in the growth and success of the tech sector... and it's the only way for non-tech companies to have presence, so you will be uniquely positioned to better connect with your key audiences.

Discover Tectoria attracts students (of all ages), parents, job seekers, media, investors, government officials and more.  

THE NITTY GRITTY:

  • Access to a huge audience for 7 hours at the Island's largest tech expo
    (Opportunity to make new connections and sales leads)

  • Showing your support for Victoria's Technology Sector

  • One 8' x 10' booth package

  • Your area being named after your company

  • Logo placement in all conference materials including a recap video

  • Support acknowledged in advertising and press releases

  • Link to your web site from the event page.
