The city of Hull is enjoying a rapid rise in success at the moment following recent business wins for companies such as KCOM, Arco and Connexin which have placed the city firmly on the global tech scene.
Events such as The Digital Awards 2018 have opened the door to key influencers to collaborate across the city. They form part of a number of business events which are seeking to attract more technology-led investors to the city.
One such event – TechBites, although fairly new on the scene, is already attracting a lot of attention.
Antonio Tombanane, Operations Director for GB Recruitment, organised the recent TechBites event which was held at DobuleTree by Hilton, Hull and featured industry-leading tech analyst and public speaker – Neil Cattermull.
Antonio commented: “We are delighted to have brought TechBites to the city once again. We’re primarily a people business and what we’re seeing in Hull is a concurrent rise in both skilled IT Professionals and digital technology being utilised by businesses in the city. To have someone like Neil, who has worked for companies like IBM, Oracle and Merrill Lynch, was a huge moment for us and the city. One we’re looking now to build on.”
“What we’re looking to do with an event such as TechBites is link together the highly skilled IT professionals in our city with influencers and technology companies in a more relaxed and informative setting.”
“It was a fantastic event, Neil is very inspirational, and I know his ideas really hit home with a lot of the business leaders that attended the event.”
