Tech Fair In Cumbria
Hi, Iím trying to organise a tech fair in Cumbria.
At the moment we are currently have the following vendors interested in coming along.
What I would like to know is who would be interested in attending?
We are looking to host it in the February Half Term, a date is yet to be fixed, at Ullswater Community College, Penrith.
It would be free to attend and coffee / tea would be on tap
Thanks for your support
just to add my support to this, we would be very interested in a tech fair. Not everybody from way up north can make it to the best events down south. So it would be nice to have something close to home.
I'm interested too, although not sure if i'm going to be working in half term.
the other factor is that I'm in Ulverston so its a bit of a treck but as other have said not as far as London!
Drop me an email and I will forward it on to the relevant people. ICT Direct may be interested (they're local-ish) and maybe LUNS?
Sounds like something I could come across for. Thanks.
On behalf of one of the manufacturers you mention, I'd be interested in discussing the Cumbria Tech Fair with you.
Hi Simon, Meru would be very happy to support this event, both in terms of presence, and in terms of sponsorship. Half term may be tough for me personally due to having one too many children than is normal all of a very young age and it's half term, however one of my colleagues would be attending
Feel free to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
we'd love to come but I suspect it may be a little too late ref broadband due to all the contracts needing to be resigned for another year starting March. Happy to pop up and show you our other wares though.
A Quick update
Thanks for all the support, currently things are still on track for the Feb half term. Hopefully in the next week or so i will get a date set with all the vendors - Will have a lot more details after Xmas.
To all other vendors who have expressed an interest in attending, this event is being sponsored this year and I don’t want to step on any ones toes. If the Fair goes well and we have plenty of people attending then next year we will be looking to expand and invite more vendors.
Thanks again all
Have a good Xmas
Sounds good, i'll be going
I will be attending! Sounds good. Makes a change having to spend hours on a train, to spend the night in a dodgy hotel just for a few hours in a conference in London!
Hopefully this will be the start of some more regular events like this. Especially with the local schools in the area struggling to fund their Network Managers/ICT Technicians to go to such events.
This event should be well recieved.
If you let me have the details I will have a word it would be good to come along.
