On the evening of May 8th, at the Marriott Richmond, the 18th Annual Richmond Technology Awards were held in celebration of the many breakthroughs, advancements and outstanding technologists Richmond has to offer. As Richmond’s “Academy Awards” of Technology, the Gala hosts over 600 of the area’s tech giants with eight award categories. The awards presented included The Community Catalyst Award, The Emerging Company Award, The Technology Builder Award, The Innovation in Development Award, The Innovation in Utilization Award, The Educator Award, The RichTech Chairman’s Award, and most importantly The People’s Choice Award.

As a part of the event we were thrilled to develop a cross platform voting app for the People’s Choice Award. Armed with smart phones, and laptops the public was able to vote for the winner of the award with just a push a button from their Android, iOS, or internet connected devices. During a period of less than 24 hours surrounding the Gala we had over 1,500 votes total across all 3 platforms (iOS, Android, and Web).

We would like to congratulate TCSC for taking home People’s Choice Award, with an astounding 862 votes.

The finalist as well as a more detailed description of each award can be found on Richtech’s event site.
