2012 Hot Ticket Awards

An NVTC Signature Event

June 26, 2012

5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Pre-Party for Nominees, Judges and Hot Ticket Sponsors
6:30 - 9:00 p.m. Hot Ticket Awards Party and Awards Ceremony

Celebrate the hottest entrepreneurial technology companies that have exhibited that special something that makes them "Hot Tickets" - great vision, the ability to implement and deliver, an innovative management approach or star-quality charisma. The annual NVTC Hot Ticket Awards will be held June 26 at the home of NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg.

Meet the companies that had the Hottest Buzz, the Hottest Venture Capital Deal, and the Hottest Exit in the last year. We will introduce you to the Hottest Emerging Government Contract, Hottest Management Team and the Hottest Startup. Get to know this year's Hottest Bootstrap. Finalists and winners in each of these categories will be announced poolside.

Don't forget your grass skirts and leis! The Annual Bob Dinkel Tropical Attire Contest is back by popular demand this year. Wear your best tropical attire to compete.
