Earlier this month, The SPARKies 2023 brought together the best of the South West region’s tech and digital community to the picturesque Parade Gardens in Bath to celebrate the best startups, designs, hardware, people and more and to finally discover who has been crowned the winner of our 17 awards.

As I’m sure everyone who attended will agree, it was a fabulous evening and a key reminder of just how connected and collaborative our community is. Holding the awards as part of the Bath Digital Festival (BDF) couldn’t have been more fitting (psst If you’re already missing the festivities of BDF, the Bristol Technology Festival is coming very soon!).

Our wonderful photographer, Julian Preece, did a stellar job as per at capturing the buzzing atmosphere of the event. Take a look through the pictures here to reminisce. Can you spot yourself?
