Sussex Tech Week – Ideation Session

1 February @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

We want to hear the voices, experiences, and knowledge of our business community to help us design innovative content for Sussex Tech Week.

Sussex Innovation are collaborating with Platinum Media Group to deliver one of the biggest tech confrences in the South-East. Sussex Tech week is a 3-day event designed to elevate the existing tech, digital, and media cluster that significantly contributes to the local economy, valued at £1 billion.

We want to draw on the voices, experiences, and knowledge of our business and academic community to contribute to the curation of Sussex Tech week.

We are bringing together the business and academic community on Tuesday 1st February for an ideation session where you can express your ideas that will help curate Sussex Tech Week’s content, agenda, and focus.

What to expect from the session:

The ideation session will take place at Sussex Innovation and will consist of networking, followed by a moderated session with a series of questions being put to attendees to capture valuable insights about the tech industry.

We want to hear the voices, expectations, doubts, recommendations, and dreams we all have regarding the tech world.

We understand that the Tech industry is vast and covers a large range of innovative solutions and challenges to overcome. We aspire to deep-dive into the different areas of tech, from femtech, to food and retail tech and everything in between.

The aim of the session is to understand the key challenges that are taking place within the industry.

We are particularly interested in understanding more about Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in Tech and the entry barriers certain communities face when entering the world of STEM.

Additionally, we would like to understand the interests, and willingness to pay for this event, of students, researchers, or any other participants interested in technology.

Questions to think about ahead of the session:

  • How can Sussex Tech Week best support and showcase the tech, digital, and media cluster?
  • What technological trends or advancements have particularly impacted Sussex?
  • What potential challenges or barriers exist that prevent the expansion and fostering of innocation within Sussex’s tech industry?
  • There are multiple Tech Weeks across the region and country, what would make Sussex Tech Week different and attract a range of attendees?
