ENTER NOW: Go:Tech Awards receiving record number of entries

Posted on: 29th June 2020

The 2020 Go:Tech Awards are open for entry – and already some of the UK’s leading tech companies and individuals have put their names forward for this prestigious annual event.

With entries open until September 11th, there is still time to send in your entry.

The Go:Tech Awards celebrate businesses and entrepreneurs leading the way in technology and innovation across the UK. To bring you this event, we’ve collaborated with some of the country’s leading university technology departments, business incubators, and independent tech associations.

Our categories and judges have been carefully chosen to showcase and evaluate a cross section of the nation’s greatest innovators – from daring start-ups to established thought leaders.

The Go:Tech Awards has become the must-attend tech-focused business event of the year – however, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to make a few changes.

Like you, we have had to react to the pandemic, and this has meant that we have had to come up with alternative plans for our Awards.

To ensure we continue with the event – but respect the current situation – a new schedule and timelines of milestones has been launched. Further details will be announced as the situation develops.

New process

  • Entries have opened early – and are available now!
    • Judging will then take place ‘virtually’ or in person where safe to do so
    • A shortlist and the winners will be announced virtually later on this year – rather than at a gala dinner held in November
    • When suitable in 2021 – the finalists, winners and sponsors will come together for a celebration dinner

The Go:Tech Awards team feel it would be irresponsible to expect you to attend the dinner as usual this November and feel that this process maintains for spirit of the event and allows for businesses looking to enter, sponsors and judges to still benefit from the process.
