During the event, Kilberg announced NVTC's recent commitment to serve only Virginia wines at all its events to promote Virginia's wine industry as a creator of jobs and revenue in the Commonwealth. Speaking to the Hot Tickets crowd, Kilberg issued a friendly challenge to the other trade and membership associations in Virginia to join NVTC in this initiative.

The casual atmosphere was enhanced with the Annual Bob Dinkel Tropical Attire Contest. Contestants competed for the grand prize - a seat at the President's table at this year's TechCelebration, the NVTC Annual Banquet. Judges agreed, Chira Gundlapalli, Intellizant, had the "best" overall tropical outfit of the bunch. The following took home prizes for their "over-the-top" tropical attire:
