Weston to launch network for tech and digital professionals
The South West is known for its thriving tech and digital scene, particularly in Bristol and Bath. However, recognising the region’s more hidden pockets of growing tech talent, TechSPARK has joined forces with Weston’s brand new creative co-working hub The Stable to launch a brand new tech and digital network.
“Weston has a growing tech scene which we’re excited to welcome into the TechSPARK network”
Taking place on January 24, this free networking event will bring together the movers and shakers from Weston’s tech and digital scene with others from Bristol, Bath and beyond to meet, share ideas and collaborate in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Kerry O’Neill The Stable’s manager (pictured left) says: “TechSPARK is the go-to organisation for tech types in Bristol and the South West when it comes to social and networking events. Weston’s digital and tech scene already exists but we wanted to work with TechSPARK to host a standalone event at The Stable to give all the freelancers, remote workers and locally based businesses a chance to work together.
“TechSPARK has serious reach so it made sense to work together with an established body at the heart of the region’s tech cluster. We hope that this will be the start of a regular tech meet up for Weston and The Stable – the town’s new digital, tech and creative hub – is the best place for it to be.”
As well as offering a brilliant networking opportunity, TechSPARK’s managing director Ben Shorrock will be giving a talk on what is happening in the region followed by several lightning talks from key influencers in the community.
Ben adds: “Weston has a growing tech scene which we’re excited to welcome into the TechSPARK network.
“We hope that it brings about new connections and exciting ventures for the South West tech and digital community.”
Anyone with an interest in the South West tech and digital community is welcome to sign-up. Simply join the TechSPARK meetup group and RSVP to ‘Welcome to Weston Tech’ for free to confirm your place.
