We will once again sponsor this year’s Shropgeek (R)evolution conference that is taking place in Shrewsbury at the end of September.

We have been providing our Contensis website content management system to some of the biggest organisations in the UK and Europe for over a decade.  Contensis is designed to power websites with large or growing numbers of visitors and as such many of our clients are in the local government, education and health sectors.  The company now numbers around 40 employees and has been based in Cleedownton, near Ludlow, from the outset.

Our CEO Richard Chivers explains that “Zengenti has had a long and successful relationship with Shropgeek.  Several of our staff are regular attendees and speakers at Shropgeek events so it seemed natural for us to come on board as a sponsor last year and to continue our support this year.”

Shropgeek is a community of like minded people who work, are involved in or simply interested in all things geeky.  Following several years of monthly networking events Shropgeek held its first annual conference in 2010.  The event was a resounding success and has been a regular feature of the Shropshire business calendar for the past five years.

Shropgeek organiser Kirsty Burgoine says “We're super excited to have Zengenti on board as sponsors of (R)Evolution for the second year in a row. It is really important to us that companies from within the local community get involved and help support our events because we create these events for them, so to have Zengenti's continued support is amazing!

Its also been fantastic to witness the success Zengenti have had in recruiting in the past as well, as a result of their involvement with our conference. ShropGeek is here to help and support the digital community in Shropshire and to know that we played a small part in helping people find new roles within the county is awesome!”

The (R)Evolution conference features speakers from the digital industries, including staff from Facebook, The Guardian and Buffer, as well as fringe events and an after party offering extra networking opportunities.

Shropgeek (R)Evolution 2015 will take place at the Shropshire Conference Centre on Friday 26 September.  Click here to buy tickets.
