Having run monthly meet-ups for local technology experts for several years, the organisers of Bristech decided that 2015 was the year to launch their first full conference.
Working with Focal Point as the event coordinators, Bristech2015 developed into a sell-out first year event with more than 270 delegates and 18 speakers presenting across three rooms. Sponsorship was secured from leading tech firms including Scott Logic, ForgeRock, Softwire, Brightpearl, IMDb and IBM Cloudant.
Focal Point provided complete event management including registration, planning and logistics, staffing, venue, catering and AV management. We also developed the branding for the event, ensuring the flyers, staging, banners, badging, t-shirts and lanyards were all on-brand, professional and aspirational.
The event was a great success and there are already plans to make Bristch2016 even bigger and better. We looking forward to being part of it.

Nicholas Hemley, Bristech Founder, had this feedback:
“The Bristech 2015 conference was a successful event in no small part to the efforts of Thomas, whom I would highly recommend as an event coordinator. His unflappable nature, willingness to go beyond the brief and attention to essential detail were characteristics in evidence from the get-go. Thomas brought energy, ideas as well as much-needed practical touches to the event; I hope he will do the same for us in 2016!”
