ICT Conference and Excellence Awards 2009

Just thought I would write a quick note about the ICT Conference and Excellence Awards being held at the National Motorcycle Museum, Bickenhill, Birmingham on 10 November 2009.

If you haven’t been before, the conference is the largest technology focused conference within the West Midlands, and is currently in its 6th year. The conference seems have built in popularity each year, culminating in 420 delegates attending last year.

In the organisers own words, “The purpose of this exciting event is to provide SMEs with unrivalled access to technology partners, thought leaders, business innovators and support organisations. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded individuals in the region.”

nFocus have attended this conference for a few years running, and having won at the awards previously with their Virtual Test Service, will be going back this year. We hope to see some of you there.

The theme for this year’s event is “Competing in the New World – Innovating your way to success” and if you would like to attend, you can do so by sending an email to
events@ncc.co.uk. Still not made up your mind? You can view the initial programme by clicking here.

And the ICT Excellence Award categories for this year include:

  • Best Innovative Product

  • Best Innovation Service

  • Best Added Value Product

  • Best Added Value Service

  • Best Added Value Project

  • Most Improved Business

  • Best Knowledge Transfer Project

Here’s some key dates for the diary, if you would like to enter your organisation for these awards, you have until 28 September to put in an initial entry. If you are shortlisted you will be notified by 2 October, and then be invited to give a presentation to the panel of judges on 14 or 15 October.
