Get Ready For The Tech Off: Leeds Edition!

This Wednesday, The Tech Off is heading to Leeds and we couldn’t be more excited! Part of the brand new Leeds International Festival and brought to you by Glug Leeds, Techdept and Futurelabs, The Tech Off describes itself as “the lovechild of TED talks and WWE wrestling”.

A regular occurrence in London, the rip-roaring events frequently draw crowds in excess of 650 people. With previous battles taking place at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, DMX Dublin and SXSW in Texas, the Tech Off is finally coming to Leeds for a showdown between coders and creatives at the Belgrave Music Hall.

As one of the event’s main sponsors, we’d love for you to come down and have a beer on Parallax and cheer on the speakers from both teams as they perform their five-minute trash talks. The ultimate winner is chosen by the audience, with the champ taking away the appropriately named ‘Wrestling Belt Of Digital Glory’.

Featuring foam fingers, confetti and a rallying crowd, it’s all set to be a digital talk like no other. And remember to keep an eye out for the official souvenir Parallax beer koozies and some of our limited edition Tech Off illustrations in print form, designed by our very own Phil Milward. Get more details and grab a ticket over on the official event page. See you there!

Glug sits at the heart of the creative scene in Leeds, one which we’re truly proud to be part of. We love design and development, plus we drink a lot of beer so getting involved in sponsoring The Tech Off just makes sense as it combines all the things we’re about, all in one place.
