With this years tech awards we continue our drive to shine a light on the amazing talent the tech ecosystem has in the West Midlands. To that end we have been on the search to find hosts for our annual awards, two individuals that represent the community and can lead us on our night of celebration.

Our search is over and it is with great pleasure we announce the hosts for this years Silicon Canal Birmingham Tech Awards.
