Intellectual property experts in Cardiff are supporting the next generation of technology leaders through this year’s Wales Technology Awards.
Leading firm Wynne Jones IP is among the sponsors at this year’s event, which will be taking place in Cardiff City Hall in May.
The awards celebrate the invaluable contributions of over 3,000 businesses and over 40,000 people who are driving success and innovation across the Welsh technology sector.
The event has been organised by ESTnet, a network of technology organisations whose members design, develop, manufacture or integrate electronic and software technologies.
Last year over 370 ESTnet members attended the annual awards at the Wales Millennium Centre, with internationally renowned manufacturing facility Sony UK Technology Centre, based in Pencoed, named as headline sponsor. This year the headline partner for the event will be Welsh fintech company GoCompare.
Sponsoring the Product Innovation category this year will be Wynne Jones IP, which advises on all aspects of IP rights, strategy and renewals.
