The Thames Valley is often referred to as the UK’s Silicon Valley. Technology has been a significant part of the region’s economy for some 20 years or more – and the M4 corridor is home to key international tech companies such as Microsoft, Oracle, CA Technologies, Fujitsu, Huawei and Cisco.
The region is also home to many scale-ups and start-ups in the tech field – as the digital revolution takes hold. And life sciences and biotech, science-based and space businesses have also ‘clustered’ in the Valley.
Now, Elcot Media & Events – the premier business events organiser in the region – is launching the Thames Valley Tech Awards. The first TVTA was staged by The Business Magazine on May 24, 2018, and is a major focal point for the sector.
Already, the response to news of our first TVTA has been highly positive – and we welcomed hundreds of key players to the event at the Madejski Stadium, Reading.
