What Makes This Event Unique

San Diego is home to an impressive group of information technology innovators who bolster the business, academic, governmental, and non-profit communities within our city. The Top Tech Exec Awards celebrate the unsung heroes of information technology, as these brilliant leaders and their teams serve as the behind-the-scenes forces that keep companies functioning and businesses accelerating on a daily basis.

Since 2008, Cox Business has served as Title Sponsor for an annual IT award event in San Diego, dedicated to spotlighting and lauding these technology trailblazers. “We at Cox Business are proud to continue bringing attention to the IT leaders of San Diego and to the exceptional work they do every day,” declared Larry Coval, senior vice president of Cox Business. “Their leadership is an inspiration, and the contributions made by these unsung heroes cannot be overstated.”

The number of information technology professionals nominated by their peers for the Top Tech Exec Awards has grown significantly year after year. An astute panel of independent judges from the business and information technology worlds carefully selects the honorees and special award honorees.

The Top Tech Exec Awards stand as San Diego’s largest annual award program celebrating the city’s most outstanding information technology executives. Each year, the competition is fierce as there are so many exceptional nominees.

More than 1300 people attended the 2016 event, reflecting the strong respect and deep support of San Diego’s information technology community—a vibrant sector that helps drive the new economy of the city. The 2017 Top Tech Exec Awards will carry on the tradition of celebrating San Diego’s exceptional pool of talent with this years 10 year anniversary celebration at Petco Park. This dynamic gathering brings together great minds, gourmet food, spirited libations, live music, and an exciting awards presentation to honor the information technology heroes in our home town.
