The call has gone out for local business to show their support for the cream of the region’s digital sector by sponsoring the inaugural Tees Tech Awards, which will be held in April 2020.
Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the inaugural Tees Tech Awards, allowing businesses to promote their services directly to the region’s thriving digital sector.
The Tees region’s digital sector will be celebrated when the Tees Tech Awards are held in April 2020 in association with DigitalCity and Middlesbrough Digital.
Organised by Tees Business, the 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.
Category sponsors are now being sought for companies keen to support what the organisers believe will become an annual event to celebrate the Tees Valley’s digital sector. Sponsorship is £3,000 + vat.
Category sponsorships have already been snapped up by Punch Robson Solicitors, Jacksons Law Firm and Wynyard-based IT and communication solutions specialists Communicate.
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.
Among the awards presented to organisations and individuals will be the inaugural Tees Tech Company of the Year and Tees Tech Business Leader of the Year, while other categories will recognise local tech leaders in export, innovation and partnership.
Dave Allan, director of Tees Business owners Resolution Media & Publishing, said: “These awards represent a fantastic opportunity for businesses far and wide to raise their profile within a fast-growing sector that’s sometimes hard to reach.
“We’ve had an immediate response in terms of sponsorship opportunities with several category sponsorships already snapped up, so we’d urge others who may be interested to get in touch.”
Benefits of category sponsorship include a table of 10, champagne reception, opportunity to judge category entries and present the award to the category winner, make a short speech at the awards event, a full page advert in the awards programme, event branding, opportunity to display a pop-up stand at the event, a minimum 10 social media mentions, advance publicity on the Tees Business website and in the quarterly magazine and post-event publicity in Tees Business.
