The Oregon Technology Awards celebrates excellence and achievement in the region’s technology industry and honors outstanding individuals with prestigious Lifetime Achievement, Sam Blackman, and Tech Champion awards and ten companies are recognized for their accomplishments, leadership, and commitment to the industry and community.
OREGON TECHNOLOGY AWARDS TO BE HOSTED VIRTUALLY
Due to the potential for a resurgence of COVID cases in the fall and what that might mean for regional restrictions on large gatherings Technology Association of Oregon has made the difficult decision to host our 36th Annual Oregon Technology Awards virtually.
We are honored to be working with local virtual event producer The AV Department to create an engaging online Award Ceremony experience which will include a Live Stream of the Awards Ceremony, opening our event to our larger community for free.
The Sam Blackman Award, named for AWS Elemental Founder & CEO and 2015 Technology Executive of the Year Sam Blackman, and the Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes excellence in industry leadership as well as an individual’s positive impact in the greater Oregon community
