Thanks Matt.

We got a refusal from IBM

We currently have

7 Elements (UK)
Bh Consulting (Ireland)
Hacktics (Israel)

All sponsorship opportunities are gone for Lanyards, Pens and Notepads
Diamond sponsorship is still available
We have 1 silver, 1 gold and 2 Platinum sponsors.

Connections committee can we organise some interviews in relation to the
event and the newly introduced industry breakout sessions?
