We had a quite a blast at our annual summer BBQ mixer event on August 14. It was a fun and engaging night where members from across the creative tech sector came together to socialize and network with their peers. Dipping into various interesting conversations and witnessing many new connections being made showed just how valuable these events can be. Attendees were treated to a delicious spread of food and libations in the lively and stylish atmosphere of Tavern @ The New Oxford.
DigiBC's Executive Director, Brenda Bailey, spoke briefly and highlighted our mission to promote, support, and accelerate the growth of BC's interactive and digital media (IDM) industry through government relations work, education initiatives, networking, and community-building events. With the need to grow our home-grown talent through education at all levels, membership in our trade association has perhaps never been more important than it is now. The future of our sector depends on our ability to hire talent, and DigiBC is leading the way with education initiatives geared to invite BC youth into our sector.
This event would not have been possible without the generous support of our wonderful sponsors. Huge thanks to EA Vancouver (beverage sponsor), Fasken (gold), AMPD Technologies (slider sponsor), Hyper Hippo & Segev LLP (silver). We can't thank them enough! Also, shout out to the Donnelly Group for donating a $100 gift card for the door prize and congrats to Bert Van Brandt for being the lucky winner. Melissa Dex Guzman managed to snap some great photos and those can be viewed here. Thanks, Melissa!
