Amsource Technology celebrates Leeds’ growing tech community
Amsource Technology sponsored the inaugural Leeds Digital Festival Awards last week, which recognise the commitment and success of individuals and companies within the Leeds City Region.
The awards were also supported by Ward Hadaway.
Andrew Maeer, MD of Amsource Technology, and a key sponsor of the awards, said, “There’s no denying Leeds’ tech scene is become a force to be reckoned with and last night proved why, with all the innovation in this city coming together under one roof.
“Stuart’s determination, vision and development of the Leeds Digital Festival makes him a worth worthy winner of our special recognition award.
“Special thanks go to all sponsors, judges, partners and participants who’ve all played a part in making Leeds Digital Festival a success.”
