It’s TechJPR Xmas party time!! Come along and meet your fellow Tech Js and PRs, get merry and throw some shapes. Drinks are on DWPub this year and they can’t wait to meet you all! Sign up here so you’re on the guest list and get your colleagues signed up too so they don’t miss out. Any questions just get in touch with Licia on firstname.lastname@example.org
TechJPR has a found a new home. From today TechJPR will be run by the people at DWPub.
Check out the press release here.
Us lot at DWPub hope to build upon what has been achieved by many dedicated TechJPR volunteers from the world of technology journalism and PR. To do that we want to hear from TechJPR members what you want from the group - we’re all ears.
SXSW is awesome. But sadly we can’t all be there every year.
Also awesome? A bar tab, good company and a great venue. For our newest ‘Not at’ event, we’re partnering with Ogilvy Director, James Whatley and Josh Russell from GDS to bring you #NotatSXSWLDN on Friday, March 15th, 2013.
Join hundreds of tech journalists and PRs next week to catch up, pitch made up startup ideas and act like a texan.
Tickets are available via the Eventbrite page on our Facebook group and there’ll be a few five minute speakers making an appearance too, with Jed Hallam, VCCP Share and Ben Southworth, Tech City leading the roster so far. Nothing too heavy but smart people that will no doubt keep you entertained.
And finally, we still have a few sponsorship slots open for this one. If you love the community of technology journalists and PRs out there and want to prove it by buying them all a beer or two, get in touch.
However much you can contribute, you can bet we’ll appreciate it on the night and make sure everyone knows who to thank.
See you there.
We’re well known for our Mobile World Congress parties in Barcelona and we’ve had some pretty epic ones over the years.
But this time, we’re taking a break from city of Gaudi and opting for a more local affair. Speaking with our friends James Whatley and Dan Lane, we’re joining forces to bring the TJPR community to their “Not At MWC” event on February 28th.
So while suckers ship themselves to Barcelona to complain about tired feet and touchscreens, sign up to attend the event in comfort at All Bar One, New Oxford Street, on Thursday 28th February from 7pm.
Confirm that you can make it and find the details here — we look forward to seeing you there.
Photos follow at the bottom of this post — but first, a word.

We’ve thrown some amazing parties. But our latest affair was an experiment. If we stripped back all the glitz and glamour and focussed on just the essentials, what do we end up with.
The answer is the best technology media community out there today. You guys funded the event, you made up the team that put it on, turned up in your droves and you showed what makes this community great.
It’s not some dirty networking excuse - it’s a place where job titles and professional backgrounds take a back seat to the personalities and relationships. And I’m not sure anywhere else makes that possible in the same way.
The next year will be about building out from the foundations of last night in all the right places. When you donate money to these events, you need to know we’re getting the maximum bang for you’re buck — and that’s the plan with our next event early next year.
If you have requests, suggestions or feedback, or you’d like to be involved then get in touch with us.
