Just a quick update as we're off to the Northern Tech Awards tonight. We're lucky enough to be shortlisted for Fastest Growing Tech Company (over £10m), Best Tech Deal and Best Tech Company in the North West.
It's a bit of a funny one, being nominated for awards directly, because most often we work at the technology level that underpins the creativity of other digital agencies and firms. Our focus is on keeping digital businesses online 24/7, so to come into the limelight as we have with the NTAs and, last month, the COMBAs, is a pleasant surprise.
It's an honour to be recognised and, really, it's testament to everyone at Melbourne, including the support staff and sysadmins, that we're able to fly the flag for the things we stand for - a passion for server hosting and customer support that's second-to-none.
Also a big congratulations to everyone else shortlisted, many of whom we know from our work. It's sure to be a great night - keep an eye on Twitter - @MelbourneHost and the hashtag #NTA13.
