Tech Week Humber will take place at the Bonus Arena, with details being revealed at the Launch event on 4th February.

Last week Tech Humber announced that they will be hosting a launch event on the 4th February. Within just 24 hours 50 people registered to attend. As a result of popular demand, the event moved to the Bonus arena, home to the Tech Expo Humber 2019. Now at 110 registered attendees – the launch event is sold out.

Antonio Tombanane, Founder of the Tech Week Humber, said: “I am blown away by the level of support we have received. To sell out within 72 hours was amazing. We’ve spent the last few months working on some amazing ideas with partners old and new. I can’t wait to share our plans on the 4th February.”

The event this year has also undergone a subtle shift in its duration, from Tech Expo Humber to Tech Week Humber as the team prepare to deliver a festival of events showcasing the Tech scene in the region. The aim of the week will be to engage the business community with innovative tech and inspire the next generation of tech talent.

Last year saw some of the world’s biggest brands attend, speak and exhibit. These included IBM, TES Enterprise, Twitter and many more. This year promises to be no exception as the organisers plan to shout even louder about the potential of the region.

“The Humber region is thriving with huge investments and opportunities. We are very natural resources rich. This is our opportunity to inspire the younger generation into tech and to encourage businesses to continue to innovate. It is great to have such amazing support from everyone,” said Mr Tombanane.

Tech Week Humber comes off the back of the successful legacy of Tech Expo Humber 2019. Over two days the event attracted over 2,000 people through the door and managed to reach a staggering 1.5 million through PR and Social.

The launch event will outline plans, reveal details of events, and explain how people can get involved in Tech Week Humber.
