Locked and Loaded: Tech Fest Toronto Lineup is Now Full

Posted by Rob Lewis

In November Techvibes hosted a recruiting event in Vancouver called Tech Fest that brought together the hottest tech companies in the city.

The one-of-a-kind event had a lineup of 10 execs from some of fastest growing companies in Vancouver pitching the job-seeking audience on why they should consider working for them.

Techvibes is bringing this event to Toronto on March 27 at The Great Hall on Queen Street West and you're invited to attend.

 

 

Earlier this week we announced that BNOTIONS, Hubba, Bionym, Slyce, Achievers, and Top Hat were joining FreshBooks, Shopify, and Wattpad to present at Tech Fest Toronto. Today we're announced that Vena Solutions is the tenth and final company to pitch what will be a sold-out job-seeking audience on March 27.

There will be drinks and good food as attendees meet the CEOs, hiring managers, and executive teams of the presenting companies. Each company will have a creative exhibit area set up; in Vancouver there was a foosball tournament, popcorn machine, ice cream sundaes, ping pong, 4D simulators, and prizes.

And the highlight? Watch the company reps have three minutes on stage to pitch you on why you should work for them. Hear what sets them apart, their perks, and the technology they're building.

Job seekers should register for free now as this event will fill up fast. Your ticket includes one complimentary beverage and appetizers.
