Kamloops Innovation Centre is hosting its annual Tech Fest this Friday.
The event brings together local techies, innovators and disrupters, with this year’s Tech Fest celebrating the industry throughout B.C.’s Interior.
The event will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the plaza next to the former Keg restaurant in downtown Kamloops, just east of Sandman Centre.
About 30 tech companies are expected to be on hand, with booths in the courtyard area set up in a tech market.
Tech Fest will also include food trucks and drinks served by Red Beard Café, along with live music.
It will be capped off with a sunset ride aboard the 2141 Spirit of Kamloops heritage steam engine.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at eventbrite.ca.
More than a dozen startup companies work out of Kamloops Innovation Centre’s building at Tranquille Road and Wood Street on the North Shore.
A handful more take part in various programming, while others drop in at the co-working space on a daily basis for a place to plug into outlets — and to plug into the local tech scene.
