Project Description

We love to establish lasting partnerships with our clients and Bristech is a great example. We’ve now been Bristech’s conference organiser of choice for over four years, helping them to develop their events from monthly meet-ups to (probably) the largest and (definitely) the best respected tech conference in the South West.

2018 saw the Bristech conference continue to develop. The sell-out conference took over the full Watershed in central Bristol. Close to 500 attendees made use of all three cinemas for a multi-screen broadcast, the public bar area was transformed into an exhibition/networking space and the meeting room suite housed an additional conference stream. As well as the Bristech-programmed content we also hosted the final of the 2018 Silicon Gorge pitching competition, allowing start-ups to pitch for up to £5m, and a start-up event hosted by Yena.

As you’ll see from the video – the response was great. Sponsor, delegates and speakers alike all praised the event for the high-quality, hands-on content and friendly-yet-professional feel. Ticket sales were up and costs were down. A great result.
