The 2013 TechPoint Mira Awards presented by BKD CPAs & Advisors was the largest event in the program’s 14-year history. A record-breaking 1,000 tech professionals attended the gala at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis on April 20, and this year’s class of Mira Awards finalists and the group of independent judges who scored nominations and selected winners were also the largest ever.

Mike Langellier, president and CEO of TechPoint, said that he and the TechPoint team set out to produce the best … most fun … most memorable … most impactful Mira Awards ever, in celebration of Indiana’s thriving tech sector and everything that means for our state. The fact that it drew the biggest crowd since the Mira Awards started just before the turn of the century is an indicator that we are on the right track.
