Festive Tech Calendar 2021


For this year's Festive Tech Calendar we are introducing the idea of being a site supporter.

We welcome individuals or companies who would like to run a competition or similar and have them give out prizes as part of the Festive Tech Calendar.

We aren't calling them sponsors because we aren't taking money from anyone, our event is 100% FREE and always will be.

So if you would like to get a shoutout or have your company run a competition as part of the event.

Please Reach out to or on Twitter
