UK startup Tactile CRM were announced today as the winners of Sun Microsystems competition for UK startups to win an exhibition package worth £2500 for The Future of Web Apps Expo which hits London on October 8-10.
Sun, promoting their excellent free Startup Essentials programme, gave Tactile a stand in the Expo Space – Start Up Community, a delegate pass, an expo pass and a listing on the FOWA site. Not content with this generosity, they also awarded a runner-up prize to ‘Shopping without searching’ startup Veedow, who win space on the Sun Lounge to demo their new version to be launched at Future of Web Apps. (Veedow are hiring, by the way.)
Next week, Sun are running a competition to win full conference tickets worth £495 to Future of Web Apps, and also are offering startups who join Startup Essentials, and use the ref code (sssch) FOWA08DSC, a code for 15% off FOWA Conference passes and free EXPO pass tickets, so keep an eye on their blog.
The line-up at FOWA’08 includes Jason Calcanis, Kevin Rose, Kathy Sierra, Tim Bray, Blaine Cook and David Recordon, and FOWA Expo is a great opportunity to see what’s new, and what’s going to be next in the web. Our friends from Diggnation, who presented their show live from the Next Web Conference 2008 in Amsterdam back in April will also be presenting a live Diggnation show from FOWA – always an event to look forward to.
