Without a doubt, the most premier networking event for the Northern Virginia technology community in the summer is the NVTC’s ‘Hot Ticket Award’ gathering.

Technology leaders and innovators from the region convene annually at NVTC CEO Bobbie Kilberg’s house to celebrate the region’s movers and shakers in the following award categories: Hottest Bootstrap, Hottest Buzz, Hottest Emerging Government Contractor, Hottest Exit, Hottest Management Team, Hottest Startup and Hottest Venture Capital Deal.

This year, NetLink had the unique honor of being a Hot Ticket sponsor, which proved to be the ideal opportunity to help raise awareness about what we do, who we are and what makes NetLink unique.  We also got some great publicity as a result.  Check out this photomontage from the Washington Business Journal that includes a couple shots of NetLink consultant Carlos Diggs.   We were also included in the official NVTC press release announcing the winners.

Although the weather was a bit hot (pun intended), the event proved to be a major success – especially for the winners.  When more than 550 tech executives get together on a hot summer evening, big things are bound to happen.

Congratulations to all the 2011 Hot Ticket winners and see you all next year at Bobbie Kilberg’s house.  And, perhaps next year someone from NetLink will jump in the pool?
