The 12th annual GeekWire Awards — the Oscars of the Pacific Northwest technology community — return on Thursday, March 26, at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture.

We’re excited to recognize the innovators, entrepreneurs, scientists and business leaders making a difference across more than a dozen categories, everything from Startup of the Year to Next Tech Titan to CEO of the Year.

Early-bird tickets are available here or below, available through Feb. 11. The GeekWire Awards, presented by Wave Business, sell out every year with more than 800 people in attendance. The nominations will open Jan. 22, and community voting to determine the winners in each category will kick off Jan. 31.

In addition to enjoying a fun evening that recognizes the very best of the Pacific Northwest technology community, guests also receive access to MoPop exhibits during the event. Drinks and appetizers will be served in a party-like atmosphere, and we’ve got a few surprises in the works that will make the Awards even more fun and entertaining this year.

But what makes these awards so special is they are chosen by you, our GeekWire community. Over the years, the GeekWire Awards have celebrated some of the technology community’s leading companies and innovators. Past winners have included Tableau, Zulily, PopCap Games, Convoy, Textio, Avalara’s Scott McFarlane, DreamBox Learning CEO Jessie Woolley-Wilson and many more. You can check out last year’s recap here.

A huge thanks to longtime presenting sponsor Wave Business, as well as gold sponsors: EY, Premera and JLL. Also, thanks to supporting sponsor First Tech Federal Credit Union. If interested in sponsoring the GeekWire Awards, please contact us at advertising@geekwire.com.
