The brightest minds of the city's tech scene gathered face-to-face for one of the first times in nearly two years at Talking Tech.

The Norfolk Chambers' annual event was held at The Space last week to the delight of the sector. 

Nova Fairbank, chief operating officer at Norfolk Chambers of Commerce, said: “Talking Tech 2021 has been a fantastic success.

"It’s the Norfolk Chambers first face-to-face event in 19 months and to bring the Norfolk business community back together after so long has been amazing.

"Over 85 delegates were in attendance, representing a broad range of organisations across the region, hearing from expert speakers on how technology and innovation can add real value and benefit their businesses.”
