The Techies celebrate the amazing tech innovation happening on our doorstep and shine a light on organisations, projects and individuals undertaking outstanding work in their fields.
This was the first year since 2019 that the awards could be held in person, with virtual and hybrid award ceremonies in 2020 and 2021. The resounding comment was “It’s great to finally be back in the room”, with over 120 guests in attendance.
