Dan Burgar, Archiact

“This year was particularly good for us, we had lots of good meetings. We’re very happy with ICT West for setting us up in this lovely space here. There are 2 meeting rooms with full access to soundproof meetings, there’s networking events everyday and we’re meeting new contacts that we didn’t know where present here and even some local contacts from back in Vancouver, so it’s great.”

Anything we asked for, ICT West would help.

Craig Slagel, Founder RunGo
