Birmingham Tech Awards

Thursday 28th November | Bierkeller, Broad Street

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the upcoming Birmingham Tech Awards on the 28th November.

This is a celebration of those people and companies in our tech community that are helping us make it world class. Come and celebrate with us, the shortlisted and the winners. Our tech awards are not like any others in the City, it’s not a black tie event, it’s very casual and a great chance to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

We sell out every year so don’t be that person ringing us on the day asking for tickets (you know who you are)

Book your tickets here:
