The Tech Off

The Tech Off


A collision of TED talks and WWE wrestling; hear leading speakers from Leeds creative and tech communities give five minute talks on their chosen topic. The crowd chooses the champion, who walks away with The Tech Off Wrestling Belt.

Leeds International Festival presents the infamous The Tech Off! 

The Tech Off  []is brought to you by the TechDept []in collaboration with Glug Leeds [], FutureLabs []and Parallax []

The ‘lovechild of TED talks and WWE wrestling’ attracts over 650 people at its London events. With previous battles taking place at Cannes Lions, Festival of Marketing, and DMX Dublin, the Tech Off next rolls into @SXSW and then Leeds.

Come and cheer on leading speakers from both teams as they give powerful, five minute trash talks (on why they love their jobs).

This time you’ll decide just who owns the future…Is it Creatives? Or Coders? Two teams will battle it out for your savage pleasure, a 21st Century Coliseum Gladiator Battle To The Death In West Yorkshire with the aim of winning over the crowd – who then choose the winner!

The champ takes away special edition Leeds International Festival – The Tech Off Wrestling Belt Of Digital Glory!
