We might be slightly biased, but we think that Birmingham Tech Week is unmissable for those working within the tech industry, or even just people with an interest. A week spent with like-minded people in the UK’s second largest tech city is going to be nothing but beneficial for everyone attending, surely!

If you still need convincing, here are three ways in which visitors can benefit from Birmingham Tech Week:

Network

One of the aims of the week is to promote collaboration between people and businesses within Birmingham’s thriving tech scene. While some of our events are dedicated to exchanging ideas and networking, every event allows attendees to get to know each other. Being at the same event means that you at least have something in common to use as a conversation starter.

The benefits of networking are undeniable. It allows you to gain a different perspective, access new ideas and develop new relationships. You never know, someone you speak to at one of the events might become your mentor, business partner or best friend.

Learn something new
