“Due to the pandemic, we have all adapted our lives even more around technology. Yet, having a Zoom call or an online text exchange is not the same as having a conversation with someone face to face. Our goal for Tech Drinks is to create a monthly meet-up where the most technology-using residents of the Island can interact in person. Sharing ideas, tackling challenges, and overall staying connected as human beings.”

The event took place 8 times before the pandemic and is now returning monthly throughout 2022; with strong support from Island sponsors. This sponsorship allows the organisers to offer a free drink to all attendees upon arrival.
