Sophie Flanagan BeaconHouse Events

We have been appointed to create and deliver all web and creative content for the brand new tech festival to celebrate the North-East – TechNExt.

Celebrate Tech With Creative Storytelling & Collaboration

We have led on all organic and paid social and web content to highlight and celebrate all elements of the festival. Working closely with BeaconHouse Events we initially created a website that showcased the various elements of the festival. 

We have developed an engaging social media calendar that spotlights the various events, companies, personalities and activities that TechNExt is covering. We have then augmented that with a paid media campaign to help raise the awareness and participation in the event. 


User Friendly Experience – Empowering The Team

Customers now find it easy to navigate their way around the website and can get the most out of their experience.


Helping festival goers find the content that is near and important to them we implemented a search and filter system to allow people to quickly find events they cared about most.


The site works beautifully across all devices.


In a collaborative and flexible approach we used a CMS that allowed the event team to add content on the fly, this allowed a more fluid build up to the festival.
