Four sponsorship packages for the newly-revealed Tees Tech Awards have already been snapped up – just over day after they were announced.
The region’s thriving digital sector will be celebrated when the Tees Tech Awards are held in April 2020, in association with co-founders DigitalCity and Middlesbrough Digital.
Organised by Tees Business, the inaugural Tees Tech Awards will take place in Wynyard Hall’s Grand Marquee on the evening of Thursday April 23 next year.
They are being supported by DigitalCity, a Teesside University-based business group driving the development of the Tees Valley’s digital economy, and Middlesbrough Digital, which supports digital growth in the town.
They will headline the event and present the overall Company of the Year award.
Three of the other 10 category sponsorships were also been taken on the first day, after Thursday morning’s announcement.
Jacksons Law are sponsoring the Tees Tech Small Business of the Year, Communicate the Tees Tech Partnership category and Punch Robson Solicitors are sponsoring the Tees Tech Business Leader of the Year award.
Co-organiser Martin Walker said: “We’re delighted with the response already. We’re confident we’re creating something that is very much needed, and the support we’ve had in these very early days has been very encouraging.”
The awards will recognise and celebrate the organisations and individuals thriving within the Tees Valley’s fast-growing digital sector together with the local companies driving their business through digital transformation.
