Tech Week Humber 2020 to go virtual

17th Aug

The event, which is due to take place from November 9-13, has opted for a hybrid model with at least 90% of the programme now taking place online.
Tech Week Humber will now focus on two flagship events both delivered through a digital platform. This will be complemented by smaller, more targeted, events throughout the week.
Antonio Tombanane – founder of Tech Week Humber and managing director of GB Recruitment, said: “We want to invite local business to add to the week, host their own event, exhibit and shout about what they have to offer. The region is full of innovative tech companies and we aim to provide a platform to promote this.”
On Wednesday, November 11, the Tech Expo Humber will return for a second year, with local, national and international industry leaders lined up to speak. The event will include breakout sessions, virtual stands and a networking zone all designed to give the attendee the full expo experience.
Antonio added: “The real benefit of a digital event is the ability to reach a whole new audience. Working in partnership with the likes of the Department of International trade, Reach plc and Tech Nation we are looking to promote the event not just locally but globally.”
Although the format of the event may be different, the core values still remain, organisers say. The second flagship event of the week will be dedicated to education. On November 12, Tech Week Humber plans to stream the event into the classrooms of all secondary schools and colleges in the region with the aim of inspiring the next generation of tech talent.
Partners for this year’s event include Hull City Council, Department of International Trade, Reach plc, Tech Nation, Marketing Humber, Wykeland, Click Digital and Wilberforce Sixth Form College, with more announcements promised in the coming weeks.
