CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ: CPAH) (TSX: PATH), a global provider of award-winning, over-the-top (OTT) Unified Communications (UC) solutions for enterprises and carriers, today announced it is sponsoring the 2017 British Columbia (BC) Technology Impact Awards (TIA) after-party for the fifth year in a row.
The TIAs, which take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre, are a long-standing BC tradition aimed at celebrating the best and brightest in the province’s growing technology sector. As a former member of the BC Technology Industry Association’s Board of Directors, CounterPath’s CEO Donovan Jones has always valued supporting the association’s events, which applaud the success of the companies that continue to make BC a leader in the industry.
“We’re extremely pleased to sponsor this year’s after-party once again,” said Jones. “The TIAs are a night we look forward to every year to celebrate the best and brightest of what BC has to offer. There is no other event in BC that brings together the business leaders and companies of BC that are leading innovation.”
“The TIAs celebrate excellence in every respect and demonstrate the incredible people, innovation and growth that make BC the best place to grow a tech company,” said Mr. Bill Tam, President and CEO, BC Technology Industry Association. “Many of these companies are at the forefront of our industry already, leading the way in terms of global recognition. It’s our job to help them grow and expand their reach, and recognition through the TIAs program is a great step in that direction.”
