The Techies, The Business Exchange’s technology awards for Swindon & Wiltshire, has joined forces with Tech Swindon to help showcase the scale and diversity of the tech community across the region.

This year’s Techies awards ceremony will act as a key part of the inaugural Tech Swindon Summit which takes place from Monday 2nd to Friday 6th November.

The Summit will focus on the themes of Tech, Talent, Business Resilience and Innovation, and will be a virtual festival of ideas with over 2,000 attendees taking part in a range of online events and discussions.

Events will feature guest speakers and cover a broad range of topics including Cybersecurity, the use of Secure Cloud WAN and Artificial Intelligence.

The Techies Awards 2020 will take place online on Thursday 5th November from 7.30pm -9.30pm, shining the light on some of the amazing tech businesses and individuals making waves in the industry.

Lucy Paine, Tech Swindon Ecosystem Co-ordinator, said, “We’re so excited to be able to bring the Tech Swindon Summit together to support and promote our vibrant tech community in Swindon. There are over 9,000 tech workers in the region and bringing them together is a key part of our mission, doing it online just gives us the opportunity to share our knowledge with even more people.”

Anita Jaynes, Founder of The Business Exchange and The Techies, said, “This year more than ever it is important to put the spotlight on our region’s assets and celebrate the exciting and ground-breaking projects happening on our doorstep.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Tech Swindon. The Summit provides fantastic opportunities for shared learning and collaboration, whilst The Techies recognises the outstanding work of the region’s thriving tech sector.”
