Thames Valley Tech Awards

The Thames Valley is often referred to as the UK’s Silicon Valley. Technology has been a significant part of the region’s economy for some 20 years or more – and the M4 corridor is home to key international tech companies such as Microsoft, Oracle, CA Technologies, Fujitsu, Huawei and Cisco.
The region is also home to many scale-ups and start-ups in the tech field – as the digital revolution takes hold. And life sciences and biotech, science-based and space businesses have also ‘clustered’ in the Valley.
Now, Elcot Media & Events – the premier business events organiser in the region – has launched the Thames Valley Tech Awards. The first TVTA was staged by The Business Magazine on May 24, 2018, and was a major focal point for the sector.

South Coast Tech Awards

The South Coast Tech Awards (SCTA) is a new event for 2019, following the success of the sister event in Thames Valley. SCTA includes awards for start-ups, AI/robotics, innovation, telecoms and more. The event takes place at Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, in December.
Southern Manufacturing Apprentice of the Year Award
This award was launched in 2018 as part of our Southern Manufacturing 100 campaign to reward apprentices who are making their mark in the manufacturing and engineering sector. The first awards lunch was held at the Manufacturing Technology Centre at Ansty Park in Coventry. More details here
