Come to the Cabaret!

16 10 2009

“Come taste the wine! Come hear the band! Come blow your horn!”

Lyrics from Broadway’s Cabaret set the tone for the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s annual Tech 50 awards last night. Members of Sima Products and Metis Secure Solutions were lucky enough to attend PTC’s Cabaret-themed ceremony held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh. (Yes, site of last month’s G-20 summit.)

The night started with cocktails, appetizers and plenty of networking with Pittsburgh’s technology masterminds. Personally, I couldn’t pass up picking up some of the bubblegum cigars and candy cigarettes being handed out. Once the show began, the night was full of show tunes, bright lights and of course, awards.

Sima’s own Ilana Diamond was nominated for CEO of the Year. Keith Schaefer of BPL Global took home the prize, but no hard feelings here. Overall, the night was a win for Pittsburgh’s entire technology scene.

Sima Products and Metis Solutions would like to congratulate all of the winners and the Pittsburgh Tech Council for putting on such a good show!
