The North East’s Biggest Tech Careers Event returns for the fourth year

The North East largest tech-specific careers and opportunities event is returning to the region in 2020 for the fourth time. Tech Talent 2020 will see over 70 leading North East businesses, universities, colleges and training providers gather to attract and retain talent in the region.

The only event of its kind in the region, Tech Talent 2020 supports job creation and growth within the technical and digital industries. The one-day event is expected to attract over 1000 delegates and will be taking place on the 12th of May at the Boiler Shop in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The event has already attracted the attention of some of the region’s most exciting employers, including Scott Logic, Enigma Interactive, and PGL. In total, Tech Talent 2020 is expected to feature over 70 exhibitors who will be discussing the roles and opportunities on offer within the digital and tech ecosystem.

Tech Talent 2020 is managed by Sunderland Software City (SSC), an organisation enabling the growth of the technology sector in the North East of England. SSC is currently taking bookings for exhibition and is offering an early bird rate until January 31st, 2020.

Jill McKinney, SSC’s Head of Skills and Training, said: “We established Tech Talent in 2016 to help SMEs and startups recruit the right talent to grow their businesses, as well as to support talent from across the country to find quality work within the North East.

Tech Talent 2020 is open to all businesses in the North East who incorporate a digital element into their operations. This includes tech businesses who are looking for technical or non-technical staff, and non-digital businesses who are recruiting in-house developers or technical roles.

There are also discounted exhibition stands available for start-ups and small businesses, to make it easier for them to attend.”

Early bird exhibitor rates for Tech Talent 2020 end on 31st January. With more businesses and more delegates expected this year – Tech Talent 2020 is set to be bigger and better than ever.
