COMIT holds six Community events a year. They are usually hosted by a community member and are held at various locations around the country. They normally have a theme and are a mixture of presentations, workshops and networking. They also often include guest lectures and demonstrations.
COMIT aims to make Community events a relaxed and informative environment. They are not a sales opportunity for the technology members or a free IT support forum for the construction members.
Members are encouraged to vary the delegates they send and to bring along guests so that the faces keep changing. The community likes to see developers and site engineers, technicians and graduates - not just IT managers and technology salesmen.
Community Events are an opportunity for learning and understanding and for members to get to know one another on a personal level. There is usually a meal the night before for those delegates who have travelled from further afield and are staying over.
People attending Community Days come from all over the UK and Ireland and even from as far away as other parts of Europe and the US. Delegate numbers vary but are typically between 45 and 65.
If you are a COMIT member you will automatically receive details of each community events before the event. If you are not a member but would like to learn more about COMIT by attending a community day as a guest, then please contact us.
See Community Events Reports for blogs of previous community events and for the agenda, photos and presentations (where available). If you are a COMIT member or partner and would like to host a Community Day then please contact us.
