On 9th September, we hosted our biggest and most successful customer event… ever.

With 11 vendors, 16 technology sessions and 100 attendees, it was a day full of valuable, knowledge-rich insights and some great entertainment.

Our hands-on-tech area was particularly well received; the world’s leading brands such as HP, Barracuda and Huawei brought along state-of-the-art technology, including pre-releases in mobile and tablet hardware, next generation security equipment and the latest Wi- Fi beacon technology. Our customers got a ‘hands-on’ experience with the technology that’s changing the face of IT, and whether it was the latest in cloud telephony or Microsoft Azure, it was an experience that was obviously valuable to all who attended.

We were humbled to receive great feedback, with 100% of respondents finding the event beneficial along with some unbelievable comments. When our customers tell us that the event was more useful to them than some of the UK’s biggest IT conferences, we know we’ve done a good job.

The day progressed into the night, and many of our customers joined our staff and suppliers for an evening of great entertainment. “Dirty Harry” - one of the UK’s best Blondie tribute bands - rocked the night away, whilst our fire-juggling circus performer and close-up magician both astounded guests throughout.

It was a night to remember for the kids too (and the big kids of course), with bouncy castles, face-painters and a bucking bronco amongst many of the activities provided.

It was a truly memorable day and night; you might have even been ‘lucky enough’ to witness the eye-catching dance moves, star-quality vocals and bronco-riding skills of some of our usually tame employees... we might work in IT, but we certainly know how to have a good time!

If you couldn’t join us this year, we very much hope to see you at our next event. Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who was involved; roll on pure technology ’17.
