Countdown begins to Bristol’s tech festival

Bristol Technology Festival is making its return next month.

From the 9th – 13th October, locations throughout central Bristol will play host to this festival of tech with five days of showcases, workshops, panel discussions, and events.

Throughout the week, some of the South West’s leading tech companies will showcase their progress, innovations and leadership with each day of the festival taking on a different organising theme.

The Bristol Technology Festival is run by techSPARK, a not-for-profit organisation, focused on supporting and strengthening the South West tech and digital community. The South West’s tech landscape contains a mix of tech giants and emerging start-ups and Bristol has the greatest number of high-growth technology companies in the South West and is one of Europe’s top 20 tech clusters.

Ben Shorrock, managing director at techSPARK, said: “The purpose of the Bristol Technology Festival is to showcase and support the thriving tech ecosystem in Bristol and the South West. In Bristol alone, tech accounts for 36% of the city’s high-growth businesses. These organisations operate right on the bleeding edge of what’s possible; places and events like Bristol Technology Festival act as incubators for their creativity and innovation.”

Each day at the Bristol Technology Festival will begin with headline sponsors, Ghyston’s Breakfast Club at Bristol’s Engine Shed. This is set to give event-goers the chance to meet up with the wider tech community and share plans, ideas and inspiration.
