2022 was an eventful year packed with many key milestones and memorable moments for Virtu.
Previously known as Virtunet to the public, Virtu took a great leap into the next chapter the journey, launching a major rebrand in May 2022 at The Calyx, Royal Botanic Gardens with partners and clients. This shift aligned with our strategic business focuses around Sustainability, Cybersecurity and Sustainable IT solutions. Only months into our transition as Virtu, we were also fortunate enough to be awarded the newly envisioned HP Sustainable Impact Award at the HP Annual Partner Awards 2022.

Being recognised for driving sustainability as a business imperative is a huge honour and passion close to our hearts. At the core of everything we do, sustainability drives our mission, operations, and partnerships to empower people and organisations in pushing the limits of sustainable growth. This is what also inspired Virtu’s End of Year Event in 2022, our biggest client event in the calendar year.
Set in Sydney’s famous SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, we took over 100 guests through an Amazing Race experience to explore the beauty of the waters and discovered the tales of the Earth’s vast marine world, whilst learning about the latest range of sustainable IT solutions from leading brands in the market. Welcomed by local favourite Pig the Dugong, our guests explored the mysterious and fascinating marine life which co-exists with us on The Blue Planet.
The IT brands and products which were featured at this event showcased sustainable sourcing, manufacturing or innovation which help to protect our planet for future generations. Virtu clients were able to immerse themselves in the discovery of conservation and sustainable technology at one of Sydney’s most iconic locations.
