The 8th edition of the ICTalent Awards takes place on Wednesday 27 May 2020. This year Theaters Tilburg is the venue of choice. This is a first, because this is the first time that the final will be held in Tilburg. "In Tilburg we also have a Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT department on the campus. Tilburg was our first choice of location this year because we want to raise our profile in this region and also because we still have considerable growth potential here," explains Maartje van Hees, project leader ICTalent Awards. In addition, ICTalent is a programme component of the FHICT-Day, a day especially for the professional field and Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT employees and Partners in Education. This event will also take place at Theaters Tilburg. "The great thing is that the ICTalent Awards is part of this innovative day, one where everyone is most welcome! Admission is free and accessible to all interested parties." It promises to be a true spectacle once again! Free tickets can be ordered through the website.Read more
