On Thursday 26th January 2017, we hosted our first event of the year, an evening of ‘networking and nibbles’. Making the most of the 40,000 or so education professionals descending on London for the BETT show, we hired out part of a restaurant and invited along some guests to join us after their day at the ExCeL. We planned the evening as an informal gathering, with no set presentation or sales pitch, just some good company and even better conversation.
With an open invitation from 4pm, M-Tech saw the arrival of guests throughout the night, before finally departing the City at 10pm. We were delighted to welcome some new faces as well as see some familiar ones. Much mingling and networking was had by all, with guests and partners making their introductions and getting to know one another’s solutions and pain points.
Our partners were out in full force to support us. Aerohive, Smoothwall, Nutanix and DataJAR came along, bringing their knowledge and an arm full of goodies each! We were also happy to see some last minute presence from a Westcon Palo Alto representative and a BigTec Nutanix rep.
The chosen venue, located just a few steps away from the Monument, couldn’t have been more helpful. The Hydrant kept the drinks flowing and the food platters topped up. It’s safe to say we’ll definitely be using them to host again!
Thanks so much to everyone for coming along, we hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Watch this space for the next M-Tech event…
