Fraser Valley Tech Forum 2020 is Virtual

Fraser Valley’s largest tech event, the Fraser Valley Tech Forum, is going virtual this year.

We’ve made this decision out of concern for the health and safety of our communities per the guidelines by the CDC and the Ministry of Health, Govt. of British Columbia.

The virtual event will be held in fall 2020 over Tech Forum Event App, YouTube, and Facebook with opportunities to e-connect and network with other founders, entrepreneurs, business service providers, peers from the tech industry, and speakers.

The theme of this year’s event is “Resilience & Capital”. We are putting together our program schedule with feedback from local startups and businesses, and in consultation with our partners from regional municipalities, education institutes, and industry.
