Tech Week Humber.
Tech Week Humber 2019 attracted a large audience.

“We believe Tech Expo Humber is an integral part of Tech Week as it allows us to not only showcase what the region has to offer but also invite global tech giants to be part of it,” said Antonio Tombanane – Founder Tech Week Humber.

The inaugural event last year saw both enterprise and education sectors come together to highlight the possibilities tech has for the future of the Humber region. Over 2,000 people, attended and the event managed to reach a staggering 1.5 million via social media and other channels.

Tech Week Humber announced that this year’s event would be going virtual last month, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but promised still to deliver talks from some of the world’s biggest brands. Having already secured speakers from Google, Amazon, Airbus and IBM, it is clear that this year’s event will be one not to miss.

The theme for this year’s event is ‘A Connected Humber’ with the hope to highlight the region’s infrastructure, connect education and enterprise, and showcase the region to the rest of the world. An important part of the day will be allowing local tech companies to share their products and stories with a global audience.

“Although we love working with global tech giants we think it’s important that the event still showcases the region as a tech hub in its own right. This year will have a diverse line-up that allows everyone from the region’s biggest tech leaders to start-ups to share their story,” said Jo Fleming.

Partners for this year’s event include Hull City Council, KCOM, Nordstar, DMCC, C4Di, the Department of International Trade, Reach PLC, Tech Nation, University of Hull, Marketing Humber, Wykeland, Click Digital and Wilberforce College with more announcements expected in the coming weeks.
