Tech and Beer meet-up attracts 300 to Bradfield Centre on Cambridge Science Park
Find technology meet-ups rather dull and uninspiring?
Try Tech and Beer at the Bradfield Centre on Cambridge Science Park, which has grown to become one of the largest regular event of its kind in the region since being launched in November 2018.
Offering free beer and burgers - thanks to the sponsors - the monthly meet-up brings together people from across the science and technology sectors.
The most recent - held last Thursday - attracted more than 300 tech professionals, who enjoyed a barbecue and outdoor professional staging by the lake.
Speakers included Berenice Mann, of Arm, Alex Anderson of Prowler.io, Babita Devi of MySircles, Ali Daw of Gearset and Liz Cashon, of NAFIC (National Agri-Food Innovation Campus).
Kent Height, who organises the events with the team at parent company Szupernova, said: “We’re always pushing Tech and Beer - always trying new things and finding new ways to entertain and inspire our audience.
“This is the first time we’ve held Tech and Beer outside and it’s been an enormous success.
“Over 300 tech professionals coming out to an evening meet-up is unprecedented in the region. The Tech and Beer brand seems to really resonate with the tech, science and innovator community."
Kent, who previously organised events across central and eastern Europe, added: “We’re currently operating exclusively in Cambridge, but are scheduled to roll Tech and Beer out to science, technology and innovation parks nationally in Q4 2019.”
Sponsors use the event to help them attract talent.
Register for Tech and Beer on August 1 at the Bradfield Centre at www.techandbeer.io.
