Cybera Attends ASTech Awards Gala

By Lindsay Sill, Project Manager, Calgary

Cybera staff and partners were among the participants gathered in their formal attire to celebrate the 20th ASTech Awards on the evening of November 6. The annual event, which took place at the Hyatt Regency in Calgary, honoured innovative work by Alberta's science and technology community.

This year's event was hosted by Gavin Crawford from the CBC's "This Hour has 22 Minutes." Crawford entertained the audience with his comedic spin on Canada's current events and affairs, particularly the current state of the economy.

Cybera was proud to be a sponsor of the event. Cybera's Jill Kowalchuk, Vice-President of Projects and Partnership Developments, provided the closing remarks following a wonderful evening of award presentations. Kowalchuk integrated innovation is her speech, as she used her iPhone instead of cue-cards.
