The newly-announced PCR Rising Stars will take place as part of the high profile London Technology Week this summer.

The awards event has been launched as a live extension of PCR’s popular annual 30 Under 30 feature and will see gongs presented in the following categories:-

  • Retail & Distribution
  • Vendors (Hardware, Software & Components)
  • PR, Marketing & Research

The winners will be announced at an informal awards evening on Thursday June 18th at Sway Bar, London. It will form part of a series of events that form London Technology Week, which celebrates London’s global position as a hotbed of tech innovation, business successes, entrepreneurship and creative talent.

In 2014, more than 40,000 people from over 40 countries came together for 203 events held at venues across the capital. Key themes for this year include talent and education; innovation and growth; investment and funding; coming to London and going global; diversity; social impact.

“We’re delighted that we are able to host the PCR Rising Stars event during the prestigious London Technology Week,” said PCR publisher Andrew Wooden.

“It’s apt that one of the themes of the week is ‘talent and education’ given that the Rising Stars event is all about rewarding the brightest talent in the channel.”
