This multi-sector, networking event provided opportunities for technology companies looking to accelerate their growth through innovation, international trade and investment. TechWorld brought together 2,000 people from UK and international business, Government and academia, with the aim of accelerating UK economic growth by stimulating business-led innovation and opening up international trade opportunities.
Taking complete management of the event from start to finish, we recruited a small team to manage website, marketing and commercial areas, as well as appointing and managing third party contractors to deliver business matching systems, event production and staffing.
The event consisted of a 2-day 3 track conference, business-to-business matching, elevator pitches and a gala dinner with awards
We had just 5 months in to deliver this £1m event that involved 45 countries and 300 overseas delegates. Our key aim was to commercialise the event: we achieved £265k revenue (previously £0), and delivered a 3year plan for taking the event through to profit.
