Event Details

A New Venue, A New Experience

We are extremely excited to announce that this year's reimagined event for the first time will be held at the beautiful and historic Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. And that's not all! 

The event has been completely redesigned with a new format and additional improvements and will feature: 

  • A short reception with cash bar and hors d'oeuvres
  • A celebratory seated awards ceremony in auditorium with beverages/snacks
  • An energized reception featuring Innovators Row - a showcase of startups
  • Multiple and plentiful food stations
  • An after-party featuring dual entertainment like never before!
  • New sponsorship options with perks for early action (snag yours early!)
Each all-access ticket includes: a complimentary cocktail, pre and post ceremony receptions with food, the highly anticipated seated awards ceremony with food and beverages, innovators row showcase, the inaugural gala after party + complimentary downtown parking in the MARKET STREET PARKING GARAGE! 
You, your team, and colleagues won't want to miss this smashing new gala with anticipated attendance of more than 400 of the region's tech and innovation community. 

Program Overview (times approximate; some portions may overlap slightly):

  • 5:00 - 5:45 p.m. Registration opens. Reception with cocktails and light hors d'oeuvres. One drink ticket provided per guest. Cash bars available. 
  • 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. Seated ceremony in auditorium. Complimentary snack boxes and water bottles provided (grab on your way in to the auditorium)
  • 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. Following the ceremony, guests will be invited into all areas of the venue (hallways, lounges, bar rooms) to enjoy networking and innovators row –a showcase of select innovation-based startups–  while partaking in a variety of foods stationed throughout venue 
  • 9:00 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. UPSTAGE -- the gala after party at the Paramount kicks off (TURN UP!). Alternative option to chill and mingle in a relaxing atmosphere while continuing conversations. Something for everyone… and more great food and drinks!
