Comtek had no hesitation in sponsoring the awards hosted by the Journalists Charity and is thrilled to be the headline sponsor for such a worthwhile event. These awards continue to highlight all that is best about journalism in Wales and Comtek as a group are looking forward to being an integral part of such an amazing event. Supporting the Wales Media Awards is a great way to help promote the success and hard work of these individuals and the fantastic news about what the Journalists’ charity – and the people involved – are achieving.

The Journalists’ Charity was founded in 1864 by a group of journalists including Charles Dickens. It is a well-established leading organisation for journalists in need. The charity provides journalists and their dependants with practical and financial advice, grants and other forms of financial aid due to sickness, accidents or other unforeseen circumstances.

The awards will be presented at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff and will be hosted by BBC News broadcaster and journalist Huw Edwards. The evening will celebrate the most influential journalists sharing their best work and ensuring that the quality of Welsh journalism is recognised.

(English) The Comtek Group is delighted to announce that it is a key sponsor of “Full Fibre Digital Connectivity for North Wales”, a conference being hosted by Deeside Business Forum on February 23rd 2018 in Wrexham Glyndwr University.

The UK has become a backmarker in the global full-fibre connectivity race with just 3.08% of buildings in the UK connected with full-fibre infrastructure. This is embarrassingly one of the lowest percentages inside the EU’s 28-member countries, including the nations of Bulgaria, Romania and Sweden.

The conference is an opportunity for over 200 delegates to learn not just the socio-economic benefits of full-fibre in the region but also how it would help attendees grow their business or organisation. It will feature presentations, speeches, workshops, information on funding, networking opportunities and more.

Attendees will include representatives from:
• Private businesses
• Local and national government
• Key telecommunication organisations
• All six North Wales local authorities
• Public sector organisations, including NHS and education
