Tech Nation to hold special event in Cardiff

Tech Nation has announced it’ll be holding a special event in Cardiff this summer to discuss its annual industry report.

Set to take place on July 17 at Tramshed Tech, the event will highlight the latest insights on UK tech’s global performance, tech ecosystem and emerging technologies.

It’ll consist of a keynote speech from a yet-to-be-confirmed tech expert, a talk about the 2019 Tech Nation Report and a panel discussion exploring the highlights.

One of the key highlights from the report is that Welsh technology businesses have reached a combined turnover of £1 billion for the first time.

The report shows also that the number of Welsh tech companies stands at 3,600 and that employment in the digital tech sector has reached 45,000. What’s more, digital tech productivity per worker is £82,000.

“Join us at Tramshed Tech for an evening of insight, panel discussion and networking, as we explore how the UK’s digital tech ecosystem stacks up against global competition while discussing Wales’ role specifically,” said Tech Nation.

“This is an event bringing together founders, entrepreneurs, investors and tech ecosystem partners to make new connections, gain further insight into the tech ecosystem at large and celebrate the success of the local sector. We’d be delighted to have you join us.”
