An incredible night as headline sponsors of the Women in Tech Awards 2023!

VANRATH had an absolute blast sponsoring the Women in Tech Awards on 25th May and celebrating all the local women making a difference in the Northern Ireland tech industry. Congratulations again to all the incredible winners, highly commended and those shortlisted - you are the trailblazers and innovators that are shaping a better future for our community! VANRATH are proud to stand beside Women in Business to support your remarkable achievements.

Over 300 guests came together at the Europa Hotel in Belfast for an Ibiza-themed night hosted by the incredible Sarah Travers. With amazing entertainment, glow sticks, music and a party atmosphere, everyone was on their feet. We even had a lucky winner Ellie Macbeth who won our special prize in partnership with Women in Business -- 2 tickets to Ibiza! The Golden Ticket chocolate bar raffle also went down a treat with the star prize being a case of Moet champagne.
