9th-15th November 2020
Bristol’s Technology Festival was born in 2019 seeking to showcase the sheer breadth of technology that had been developed in the local ecosystem, and share the stories of those entrepreneurs, engineers and creatives behind the technology with the people of the city, and further afield. It seeks to destroy any barriers between technology businesses, their suppliers, educational and charity organisations and the residents of the community that they live and work in.
With 2020 marking the start of a new decade, we ask what will the next decade see for the Bristol Tech Cluster? And, how can we influence it for the better of society, and the environment. Bristol Technology Festival now seeks to capture peoples’ hopes and predictions for the next decade. In what ways will technology influence how we live and work? What impact will the tech cluster have locally, and globally?
This decade has started with a shock, that will surely change the direction of the tech cluster and echoes of it will continue to be felt far beyond the current crisis. But technological ingenuity has never led a straight path.
So, we’re inviting you to come on a journey with us, to share your aspirations of where you’d like to see the Bristol Tech Cluster in the next decade. Then join us every year, until 2030, whatever sector, whatever role you play, to follow that journey, and map the twists and turns, and to celebrate the remarkable successes that we know will be achieved by the people of this city.
Be one of the 5000+ attendees across our events. Meet, connect, share and expand your network.1
Add your knowledge and be a part of the conversation.3
Whether you're a developer, designer, creative, entrepreneur, parent or just interested we have sessions for everyone!2
