Tech Humber sells out launch event

21st Jan

Within just 24 hours, 50 people registered to attend the event on February 4, which, as a result of popular demand, was moved to the Bonus arena – home to the Tech Expo Humber 2019. Now, at 110 registered attendees, the event is sold out.
Antonio Tombanane, founder of Tech Week Humber, said: “I am blown away by the level of support we have received. To sell out within 72 hours was amazing. We’ve spent the last few months working on some amazing ideas with partners old and new. I can’t wait to share our plans on February 4.”
Those with a keen eye will have noticed the subtle shift from Tech Expo Humber to Tech Week Humber as the team prepares to deliver a festival of events showcasing the tech scene in the region. The aim is to engage the business community with innovative tech and inspire the next generation of tech talent.
Last year saw some of the world’s biggest brands attend, speak and exhibit. These included IBM, TES Enterprise, Twitter and many more. This year promises to be no exception as the organisers plan to shout even louder about the potential of the region.
Mr Tombanane added: “The Humber region is thriving with huge investments and opportunities. We are very natural resources rich. This is our opportunity to inspire the younger generation into tech and to encourage businesses to continue to innovate. It is great to have such amazing support from everyone.”
Tech Week Humber comes off the back of the successful legacy of Tech Expo Humber 2019. Over two days the event attracted more than 2,000 people through the door and managed to reach 1.5 million more through PR and social media.
The launch event promises to outline plans, events and how people can get involved in Tech Week Humber.
