Free IT & telecoms EXPO 2011 only days away

Techmesh logoBusinesses from across the Yorkshire & Humber region are encouraged to attend the second annual IT & Telecoms EXPO being held on Thursday 13th October 2011 at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. The free to attend event will have over 40 IT and Telecoms businesses from the region showcasing their products and solutions.


This year the EXPO – organised by the Yorkshire & Humber region’s only IT & Telecoms B2B network techmesh – will incorporate some exciting new areas, including the Techpanel, which will provide visitors to the EXPO with an opportunity to quiz seven industry leaders about hot topics and issues. There will also be an Interactive Zone, where companies will be demonstrating their products, and visitors will be able to watch, listen and play with some of the latest technologies.


As last year, there will also be a topical seminar programme with industry leaders providing updates and insights on the future of IT and Telecoms, explaining what it means for businesses today. James Akrigg, Head of Technology for Partners at Microsoft, will be the keynote speaker on the day, with presenters including techmesh gold sponsors Agenci and KC Business.  Ajaz Ahmed, entrepreneur and founder of Freeserve and more recently will also be speaking.


Helen Silverman, membership development manager at techmesh, commented, “We are really excited about the event this year. EXPO 2011 provides the perfect opportunity for people to collaborate and learn about new technologies. It is not only for those people with a focus on technology, but for managers and individuals that need to be aware of what’s happening in the sector, for the benefit of their respective businesses. We believe this will be one of the most successful events in the sector’s calendar.”


techmesh has recently become part of the Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
