About Us

Started in 2008 after the frustration of not being able to find a company with the technical expertise both to deliver high end IT solutions and for the demanding timelines of the events industry. IT companies don’t understand the events industry and the events industry doesn’t always understand high end IT.

Attend2IT look to bridge that gap. With 35 years of events experience just between the two directors, and a strong grounding in the IT sector.

Its not just WiFi! We also offer a large range of services to support the Event industry, from silent auction texting to web-streaming Attend2IT is a company you can trust to get the job done. First time – every time. Based in Hertfordshire we are ideally placed for events across the UK. We travel extensively across Europe and sometimes the world to support our clients in their international events.
