Unprecedented times call for an unprecedented event!
In place of our popular VIATEC Awards event, we are proud to announce a special one-time celebration of the people and organizations in Greater Victoria that have made exceptional contributions to our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 has made an impact on everyone and we want to help us all take a moment from reacting and adapting and take a moment to shine a light on those that have stepped up and played a role in helping others deal with the challenges and loss that a pandemic brings.
*Nominees must be located in Greater Victoria. Questions? Contact email@example.com
EVENT COVID Heroes will be unveiled on December 17, 2020 during a streamed event. The most exceptional Heroes will receive a custom trophy (traditionally given out during the VIATEC Awards), and will be profiled following the event in order to continue shining a light on them!

The Victoria Advanced Technology Council (VIATeC) is the conduit that connects people, knowledge and resources to grow a successful technology sector in Greater Victoria.
Since VIATeC's inception way back in 1989, the Greater Victoria tech sector has grown to over 800 known technology companies, employing more than 13,000 people and generating in excess of $1.95 billion in annual revenues with an economic impact of $2.65 billion. That's bigger than the revenues generated by the entire NHL and explains why the advanced technology is Greater Victoria's #1 private industry.
VIATeC is intended to be the first place that people contact for information or assistance related to advanced technology in Greater Victoria. VIATeC's membership, which currently stands at over 350 annually elects VIATeC's Board of Directors, which in turn provides guidance to the Executive Director.
