Tech industry takes over Crystal Garden

Discover Tectoria convention features more than 70 tech exhibitors

Greater Victoria’s top tech companies descend upon Crystal Garden this Friday (Dec. 13) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to show off the latest in gadgets, games and work-class innovation.

Discover Tectoria features more than 70 tech exhibitors, including a “start-up alley” with the newest companies making headlines around the tech world through new ideas developed right here in the Capital Region.

“Tectoria is the nickname we give Canada’s smartest city to remind everyone struck by the beauty of Victoria, that its No. 1 industry is actually technology,” said Dan Gunn, executive director of the Victoria Advanced Technology Council (VIATeC). “We would love for Victorians to join our community and see all that we have to offer.”

Attendees can also expect industry-leading guest speakers catering to all ages, including the Mr. Wizard Rocketsauce Show, CBC’s Quirks & Quarks’ Bob McDonald and hand-powered flashlight inventor Ann Makosinski.

Admission is by donation or free with a non-perishable food item.
