Embedded IT founded the South Hants IT Networking group in 2018 to bring together Vendor, Channel and Client IT professionals from Hampshire, Dorset and West Sussex regions, to discuss industry topics and build positive relationships. 

We meet every 2 months in Whiteley, Fareham and aim to get 30-40 attendees to each meeting. Total group membership is approximately 150 people (as of Dec 2019) across the region, and in between events there is a healthy amount of dialogue and discussion through an informal “Slack” group for paid members.

Meeting format is informal, with a topic of discussion for each session where guest speakers, or Embedded consultants, lead a debate around the use cases and considerations for a particular topic. Then we go to the pub where the real discussion happens.

Agenda for 2020 is as follows:

  • 30 January 2020 : IoT Security with Bob Vickers, Ordr
  • 19 March 2020 : 5G with Peter Curnow-Ford, Viatec
  • 21 May 2020 : Topic TBC
  • 9 July 2020 : Topic TBC
  • 17 September 2020 : Topic TBC
  • 19 November 2020 : Topic TBC 

Subscription costs are £30 per member per annum, running from 1st January to 31st December. This is run as a “not for profit” forum, with any profits made being donated to local charities, to date we have raised:

  • May 2019 : £100 for Multiple Sclerosis
