The team that organise the BathSPARK networking events have just announced that they will be organising Bath’s first ever annual tech awards; The SPARKies. The aim is to celebrate “the very best of tech in Bath” and to help put Bath on the digital map of the world.
Nominations for the main categories will be open for four weeks from 1st February and can be entered by all via a web form at Bath Digital. The winners will be chosen by a panel of judges including Paul Douglas (Editor in Chief of TechRadar.com), Tom Bradshaw (Business editor at The Chronicle), Rupert Baines (VP Marketing, Picochip), Simon Bond (Bath Innovation Centre), Charles Grimsdale (Eden Ventures) and Tessa Cook (MD of eCommerce at Dyson). Judging will take place in early March and the winners and runners up will all be announced and celebrated at a Not-To-Be-Missed Awards Party at Komedia on 21st March, 2012 – slap bang in the middle of the 2012 Bath Digital Festival.
The award party will be a night to remember. Tickets will include food and drinks and will be released for sale via the Komedia online ticket office very soon.
