It@cork Awards Ceremony

12 November, 2007

With over 60 entries the awards showcased the best of information technology in the Cork area.

180 people packed the Vertigo Lounge in County Hall on Nov 1 to celebrate 10 years of it@cork and find out who were the winners of the inaugural it@cork Leaders Awards - recognising leaders in technology innovation.

A champagne reception got the night off to a glittering start, followed by a four course meal and the award ceremony itself. John Collins, Technology Journalist for the Irish Times, was the MC and coordinated the evening's events. There was much reminiscing about the changes in the IT sector in Cork over the last 10 years and the advantage of having a member based organisation like it@cork to promote Cork as a centre of IT excellence and facilitate training and networking among IT business professionals.

With over 60 entries across 4 categories the competition was intense. The Judges included some of the region's best known and most successful IT business people and practitioners. The winners were: Cubic Telecom, winner Emerging Company; Thomas Crosbie Holdings, winner IT Department; TreeMetrics/Cork Constraint Computation Centre, winner R&D; and Abtran, winner High Potential.

Donal Manning, chair of the it@cork steering committee commented "it's wonderful to see the future of Cork's IT sector all in one room."
