Victoria’s Biggest Industry

exhibit at Victoria airport

Discover Tectoria

I had the pleasure of covering yet another event the other week for “Discover Tectoria 2017”, all hosted by one of my most fun and loyal photography client’s, VIATEC. The event was geared to help build awareness around Victoria’s biggest industry…technology. That’s right, technology! With so much to see and do here on Vancouver Island, I too was surprised that tech was bigger than tourism. However, when you check out the numbers, you’ll quickly learn that the tech industry generates over $3 billion in annual revenue, and employs over 23,000 employees across 884 companies high-tech companies. Pretty impressive, considering when you walk the quaint streets of Victoria, you really see no sign of any tech action happening here. So that’s why VIATEC, Victoria’s hub for the tech sector works hard to devise many creative efforts to attract some of the brightest minds from around the world, not to mention their many curious angle investors. In it’s latest effort, VIATEC secured an installation at Victoria’s International Airport which is strategically placed next to the airport’s arrivals exit. The installation is small, but quite impressive and eye catching with it’s steampunk’d style which was fabricated by local designer Russel Papp. And when you step within the confines of the mad-scientist installation, you not only get to appreciate all the detail that went into the space, but you also take home some key learnings of what VIATEC and Tectoria is all about. To get a better feel for this unique install, you can take a peek at a few more photo’s shared on JackFlash’s Facebook page, or better yet, come to Victoria for a visit to see it for yourself!
