Bristol Technology Festival

Engine Shed is one of the founding partners of Bristol Technology Festival.

Now in its fifth year, the Bristol Technology Festival has become an annual highlight of the city’s calendar, with a weeklong programme bringing together events, people and communities across the city to share, learn, explore and showcase the technology developed in our region. 

With over 70+ inspiring events each year, this is Bristol’s largest technology collective, designed to support those working in the industry and celebrate the depth of our sector. 

Run by tech companies and tech clusters operating across Bristol and wider area, it offers a platform for members, the region’s technology sector, education, government, companies and other organisations keen to engage with the
sector and support its growth

Its objectives are to: 

  • Raise the profile of the Bristol tech sector – locally, nationally and internationally, by showcasing the existence of a broad breadth of activity in sectors and technologies. 
  • Make technology, technology jobs and technology entrepreneurship more accessible to more citizens of Bristol. 

Any activities endorsed through the Festival should have alignment with our broader values: 

  • Diversity and inclusion 
  • Community Engagement 
  • Sustainability 
  • Responsible Innovation

The inaugural Festival in 2019 showcased 42 events across 22 venues, with over 5,000 attendees. Last year’s Festival hosted 70 events and attracted just under 5,000 attendees.
