IT challenge raring to go

More and more teams are signing up to compete in a major UK IT competition set to be held next year.

The 2009 Microsoft UK Challenge is set to take place in the Cambrian Mountains in Wales from June 10th to June 14th next year.

Firms who have already signed up to compete include HP and Fujitsu Siemens, with all entries hoping to take home the IT Cup.

A combination of business competition and adventure sport is likely to get both brains and bodies working in overdrive and provide a great teambuilding and networking opportunity for individuals and companies.

Productivity and staff retention can also be improved through the event, its organisers claim, while it has already raised more than £3 million for the NSPCC in the last nine years.

Last year, Accenture won the IT Cup, while 120 teams competed in the event and more are expected this year as the Challenge celebrates a decade of competitions.

Register and view the details of the next networking event.
