Brought to you by Technology Connected, the network for the technology industry in Wales, we were delighted to once again shine the spotlight on the dynamic, innovative tech industry in Wales.

Covid-19 has changed many things, yet technology has continuously played a crucial role; enabling us to continue to work, educate our children and stay in touch with our loved ones. Without the truly great individuals, teams and organisations behind these innovative solutions, the enabling technology of today and tomorrow would simply not exist.

About Us

Avril Lewis MBE, Managing Director

“This year’s awards were outstanding and it was an absolute pleasure to welcome the industry and its supportive ecosystem to celebrate in person all things technology in Wales.

“The speed and the rate of technological advancement and adoption has been exponential over the last couple of years due in part to the pandemic and the current  geo-political landscape. However, against this backdrop, what hasn’t changed is the commitment made and ingenuity of these companies to advancing technologies and investing in their people and Wales.

“I look forward to seeing what the next year has to hold for technology in Wales. We are excited to be spearheading the first ever hybrid Wales Tech Week in early 2023, an international summit where technology meets opportunity, as well as promoting the talent, innovation and ingenuity coming out of Wales.”
