The UK Business Tech Awards celebrate the UK’s finest tech businesses and reward innovative and exceptional application of technology to transform and grow businesses. Well that’s what the ceremony host said, right before she told us to shot the small bottle of Jägermeister from our place setting. We knew we were in for a good night.
The ceremony took place at the Montcalm Marble Arch Hotel, where we were greeted with a Champagne reception before taking our seats for the gala dinner and awards presentation. Throughout the meal we were able to chat and get to know the other guests on our table. Thankfully none of them were up for Digital Agency of the Year like ourselves, so there was no awkwardness there. We were networking with entrants in the Ad Tech Company of the Year category, the App of the Year award and the Tech for Good section, and it was interesting to learn more about their work in these fields, their company culture and their take on the office vs WFH debate.
A total of 24 awards were announced including categories such as EdTech Company of the Year, HealthTech Pioneer of the Year and Most Impressive Growth (don’t laugh). To present the awards, we were joined by Davina Lines, Managing Director of Mixing Digital and the Ecommerce Club, Gerry White, Director of SEO at Rise at Seven and Don’t Panic Events Founder, Nicky Wake.
After a lot of smiling and clapping for the other awards, the Digital Agency of the Year was the final category to be announced. So as not to keep you in suspense, we’ll cut to the chase. We didn’t win. The anxiety of tripping on the stage steps, blinking on the photo or mucking up the speech drifted away, and off we went to enjoy the rest of our night and take yet another turn in the photo booth.
We’d like to send a huge congratulations to everyone involved in the UK Business Tech Awards, we received some great feedback on our entry and will most definitely be entering more awards to spread the word on the greatness we deliver to our brilliant global clients.
Find out more about the work we do and keep an eye out for future award announcements real soon.
