Event description

Description


Overview

Fusion is a quarterly event for Tech passionate people in the Midlands, held in Birmingham city centre with a focus on engaging, thought provoking talks in an informal, sociable environment.

We aim to provide a forum for innovation, ideas and discussion, with a side order of delicious food from local providers and a few beers thrown in for good measure.

Our focus is to bring the local Tech community together over insightful talks, good food, and conversation; a networking event with a difference.

Please see the event Code of Conduct here http://confcodeofconduct.com - general overview; everyone is welcome, be nice to people, include others and have a great time!

Catering

For those of you who haven't attended a Fusion meetup previously, the team are passionate about delivering an experience for our attendees. As well as having some great speakers, we also provide catering from Birmingham's finest street food vendors.

We are super excited that Pietanic have agreed to feed everyone at Fusion in October. Pietanic is a pop up gourmet pie shop that travels to food and drink fairs in Claude (their converted Citroen H van) serving up their handmade recipes to pie lovers across the UK. Born from a pie-pe dream (sorry - their pun, not ours) that became a reality in 2015, Pietanic can be found anywhere from street food events to festivals and weddings. Always executing their mission to PURVEY THE PIE.

(Please let us know in advance if you need a vegetarian option)
