We want to say a big sorry to all those who have been unable to get on to the list for our Xmas party. And also to those who have got on the list, who may find themselves a bit squished tomorrow evening.

Basically, we screwed up and booked a postage-stamp-sized venue instead of the O2 Arena which would have just about fitted everyone in. So the event filled up almost as soon as we mentioned it on the email newsletter and this is why some of you may not have realised we were even having an Xmas party.

Please forgive us, we promise to book a much bigger venue next time and we hope this next event will be not too far off in the Spring.

Also, we had a lot of interest in sponsoring the next event but we decided that DWPub should pick up the tab this time around, mainly to show support to the group and also to keep things simple. There will definitely be opportunities to sponsor the next one. Let us know at hello@techjpr.com if you’re interested.

(Ps If you’re not already getting it then sign up for the email newsletter – it is where all TechJPR events will be announced first.)

Not at SXSW? Then be at #notatsxsw.

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.


Join us if you’re “Not at MWC”

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.
