It's nearly time for the 2017 #NottTechParty where Nottingham's tech community and (many) meetups come together for an evening of fun, pizza, drinks, friends and the frankly marvellous National Videogame Arcade. The evening wouldn't be possible without the incredible generosity of local tech companies that sponsor the event - we are so grateful for their continued enthusiasm and support. 

Big Tech Nottingham shoutout to the following companies:
