Some news at last .. we have started hatching our next event so we’ll keep you updated as we tiptoe through the arrangements. Its a different power of three this autumn as we are going to partner with Technotopia who we have worked with since they started and with the WISE campaign. Technotopia are looking for sponsors and/or companies looking to engage with children interested in Tech, we plan to run the careers fair on a seperate floor (it will be at the Colston Hall this time) and the WISE campaign will run on another floor again.
The whole event is called the Bristol Tech Fair and is running under the Bristol Technology Week on the Saturday before TEDxBristol so the 9th November, which gives you all plenty of time to dust off your CV’s or get your stand offerings uptodate. Feedback on the March event mentioned the lack of reusability of the ‘swag’ on the stands so we would like to follow TEDxBristols idea that there should be no paper or wasteful products but more engaging options. Don’t worry, we are also trying to think through options for our TEDxBristol date!
The overall view of the event is that people can come along with or wthout children to technotopia, but may want to leave their partners with the children and go engage with the WISE group or talk to the recruiting companies. So a family day out with a possible job option and some female engineering networking – whats not o love?
