MIGSOLV’S Summer BBQ a Success for Second Year Running

Blog Logo

On 12th September, MIGSOLV again welcomed over 100 business people to The Gatehouse data centre in Norwich as they hosted the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce Summer BBQ.

Now in its second year, the event also welcomed members from TechEast and featured a ‘Taste of Norfolk’ theme with locally produced food and drink.

“The weather was sunny and the Norfolk-sourced barbeque proved a big hit!”“It was once again a great event for bringing people together to network and celebrate business in the East.”David Manning, Managing Director at MIGSOLV

For those unfamiliar with MIGSOLV’s data centre and how it protects business’s IT and data, guided tours were delivered of the world-class facilities. MIGSOLV’s staff and a number of their key partners were also on hand to give help and advice.

In a brief address, the Chamber of Commerce’s Chief Executive Chris Sargisson, David Manning and representatives of MIGSOLV partners PSTG, Blocz IO and Next Connex once again showcased the breadth of innovative technology available to the region’s businesses, including exciting new services available through MIGSOLV’s partnerships.

As champions of business in the East, MIGSOLV chose a barbeque featuring Norfolk reared pork, beef and chicken, including a hog roast. Liquid refreshment was served by the Bubbles & Pips horsebox bar and included wine from Norfolk grapes and Bullard’s award-winning local gin. The menu was topped with a Ronaldo Ices cart serving more than a dozen flavours of Norfolk ice cream.

A charity auction for East Anglian Children’s Hospices (EACH) raised £200 toward their new Nook hospice appeal.

Attracting members of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce, the TechEast sector group and local businesses invited by MIGSOLV themselves, the event rounded off a successful summer for the data centre providers. MIGSOLV also took the opportunity to announce their new suite of services aimed at helping businesses take advantage of colocation, cloud storage and improved connectivity.

“This year’s event was even bigger, better and well-received than the inaugural event in 2017.”“We hope to host the event again in 2019 so we’ll have to start thinking of ways to top it! It’s a great chance to bring everyone together and showcase the roles MIGSOLV, Norfolk Chamber and Tech East are playing in championing technology in the East.”David Manning, Managing Director at MIGSOLV
