|UKOUG Techfest 2019|
Once you've enjoyed the line-up, then the real festival begins
It wouldn’t be a festival without a little time to let your hair down and enjoy an evening of networking and fun. When sessions are over, join us in the exhibition hall on both Monday and Tuesday to wind down for the night and chat over a drink.
Monday - Exhibition Drinks
On Monday night, the exhibition will be open for an extra hour to grab a drink, some nibbles and mingle with your community.
Tuesday - Guest Speaker
Tuesday - Social
Tuesday night is reserved for our traditional social evening. The exhibition will transform into a hub of fun, games, food and drink. We’ve listened to your feedback and this year’s social will include a blast from the past with retro arcade games to play, a buffet to honour Brighton’s seaside charm and plenty of time to chat with friends old and new.
Brighton is a fantastic town for a night out, so if you’re still buzzing after the social, we’ve picked some nearby locations for all of your partying needs:
