22nd Annual TechNite Celebration

The energy surrounding technology and innovation in the region is electric. TechNite 2022 will be a night to remember as we recognize the region’s best companies, innovators, and projects that continue to put Virginia’s Region 2 on the global map. Special guest speakers will unveil exciting announcements inside the incredible Taubman Museum of Art on May 19.  

Plan to enjoy a social, cocktail celebration beginning at 5:30 p.m. inside downtown Roanoke’s magnificent museum.  Heavy hors d’oeuvres, libations, entertainment, and brief programming will kick off the evening followed by an exciting awards ceremony lifting up the entrepreneurs, founders, and companies fueling the region’s thriving ecosystem. Attendees can explore the galleries then celebrate as the RBTC transforms the Taubman atrium into an after-party beneath the neon light of the Roanoke Star!


TechNite celebrates the best in the technology and innovation space, with awards in multiple categories, plus the Hall of Fame.


This historical event is made possible thanks to our sponsors, members, board of directors, and staff. We are grateful for the generous support of event sponsors. View the sponsorship opportunities available at this year’s event, and contact Erin Burcham to secure your sponsorship.
