The inaugural Tees Tech Awards, scheduled for April 23, have been postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak.
Tees Business publishers Resolution were set to host the Tech Awards, in conjunction with Middlesbrough Digital and DigitalCity, in the Grand Marquee at Wynyard Hall.
But Resolution directors Martin Walker and Dave Allan have made the decision to postpone the awards event until later in 2020.
The first ever Tees Tech Awards – a celebration of the region’s thriving digital and tech sector – attracted more than 90 entries across 11 categories. Shortlists have not yet been announced.
“The continued coronavirus outbreak and efforts to tackle the spread means we believe postponing the event is the responsible and safe decision,” said Dave.
“Naturally, we’re sad to have to make this decision as so much work has already gone into planning the event – and there’d been such a positive response with more than 90 entries.”
Martin added: “Naturally, we will honour all event sponsorships for the rearranged date and we are grateful for the continued support of our sponsors.
“When the time is right we know the inaugural Tees Tech Awards will be a memorable night of celebration for our digital sector.”
