You may have heard that we were shortlisted recently for the Best use of Technology in the Daily Echo’s backed South Coast Business Awards.

We attended the awards dinner a few weeks ago at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton (UK) where there was a buzzing drinks reception followed by a pleasant 3 course meal.

Guest speaker, Olympic silver medallist, Roger Black gave an inspirational presentation about his achievements before handing the awards to the winners.

Almost 300 attended the event which was held in partnership with sponsors Trethowans, Business South and Destination Southampton.

Unfortunately, we didn’t scoop the award for the Best use of Technology (sponsored by Taylor Made Solutions) but we certainly had a great time and danced the night away with our finalist plaque!
