The Technology 2016 event, held at Wolverhampton Racecourse on Tuesday 27th September, was a resounding success; bringing together over 50 World leading security, fire detection, communications, audio visual, life safety, cyber crime and business support exhibitors under one roof for one day only.

Welcoming the business community

???????????????????????????????Technology 2016 was conceived and organised by The Thompson Group team as part of the wider Wolverhampton Business Week, which provides a focused series of business to business educational and developmental events for organisations to meet, network and find out more about the opportunities available to grow and secure their future.

Hands on demonstrations

The future

Indeed the event was such a success that plans are already in place for the next business technology demonstration day in the autumn of 2017 – so keep your eyes peeled for news and when registrations are open.
