/NEW is Newcastle’s biggest technology conference. Running in 2024 for its second year, the two-day conference aims to celebrate the vibrant Newcastle technology scene and give technology professionals in the area access to upskilling and networking locally.
In 2024, /NEW will be held on the 15th and 16th of May, at NEX Conference Center in Newcastle. /NEW showcases fantastic Keynotes, a line-up of speakers from Newcastle and beyond, panel discussions, workshops, and ample networking opportunities.
This conference is organised for technology professionals by technology professionals and aims to represent everything Newcastle; from the large enterprise-level organisations to the home-grown local businesses and everything in between.
Our inaugural conference /NEW conference in 2023 was a hugely successful launch of the conference. The two-day event was sold out with a maximum capacity of 350, and we have plans to expand on that in 2024.
Newcastle is a hidden gem with a thriving technology community. With a range of technology meetups running monthly in the city, the tech ecosystem is highly connected. With an ever-increasing remote workforce in the city, fostering a thriving Newcastle tech ecosystem has never been more critical or more possible, and we’re delighted to create the space to form and strengthen connections.
