Thank you for celebrating with us!

20th Annual Celebration of Our Regional Technology Community

We are grateful to all who were able to join us for our 20th annual TechNite event in 2019 at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center. This historical event was made possible by our members, staff, and board of directors. Twenty years of celebrating this region’s technology community are no small feat, and we were honored to have the opportunity to share this evening with our region. We would like to say thank you to Michael Fleming, CEO of Torc Robotics for serving as this year’s keynote speaker, as well as congratulate our award recipients and hall of fame inductees. It was truly a pleasure to celebrate your various accomplishments across our region this year. Thank you to all who attended TechNite 2019, we look forward to many years of celebrations to come and hope to see you at TechNite 2020!
