Shrewsbury based website developers The Web Orchard are pleased to announce today, their Platinum level sponsorship of the fifth annual ShropGeek (R)Evolution Conference - which is taking place this September.
The exciting and lively ShropGeek (R)Evolution Conference will see more than 200 people from all over the web-world, join together for a very unique full-day web conference in Shropshire's stunning county town. Entrepreneurs and business professionals will combine their varied backgrounds and internet experiences, to share what makes things faster, stronger and better when it comes to anything world wide web!
2014 will mark the conference's fifth year of successful operation - and it will be the first year that The Web Orchard have pledged Platinum sponsorship.
Speaking of the support which The Web Orchard will be providing this year, Pete White said "We may be a rural county and away from the busy life of the cities, but Shropshire has just as much to offer in terms of web and commercial opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs. There are so many people here in Shropshire that are making real successes of the web, for example full-time Bloggers right through to substantial companies - and the ShropGeek conference aims to celebrate these achievements, as well as provide professional development for those who attend."
The ShropGeek (R)Evolution conference is being held at Shrewsbury's Conference Centre and is taking place on Friday 26th September 2014. The special event is delivered and organised by national industry-recognised experts - and the primary aim is to support the UK's digital community. Shropshire people with a passion and interest for the web, are encouraged to consider attending this year.
Platinum sponsors, The Web Orchard, have recently completed new websites for clients including Shropshire Fire and Rescue and Telford Shopping Centre. They are a Drupal specialist and Pete White is also a professional blogger, as well as Editor of the popular Love Shrewsbury website.

Interacting with Shrewsbury Town Council will soon be quicker and easier after councillors approved plans for a new website.
At a meeting of the Finance & General Purposes committee on Monday [4 AUG] members appointed Shrewsbury based company, The Web Orchard, to re-design the existing site following a robust selection process.
The brief was to make the existing website simpler to use, and more responsive, ensuring that visitors will be able to find what they are looking for within a few clicks.
The new site will be built using responsive technology to recognise which type of device people are using and adjust accordingly.
The design of the previous website, which is five years old, was found to be outdated and difficult to navigate, particularly on mobile and tablet devices. The new design will remove some large blocks of text and replace these with clear icons guiding users to the pages they need.
Work on the new website, which will sit on the existing platform at www.shrewsburytowncouncil.gov.uk, is already underway, with a prototype due to be presented to councillors in October.
Councillor Alan Mosley said: “Soon after taking over the leadership of the Council we recognised that our website was outdated and, as part of our revised Communications Strategy, we resolved to change it to something more fit for purpose. We want a website that will allow the Council to get closer to its residents, one that is more open and accessible and user friendly for all types of devices.
“The re-designed site will be attractive and informative, while giving opportunities for feedback and consultation with residents. We want the new website to link with all our partners as we work together at putting Shrewsbury first.”
Pete White, director at The Web Orchard added: "We're delighted to be selected to re-build the Shrewsbury Town Council website and are already busy working on the project. There are some interesting challenges that we are looking forward to tackling."
