This event sounds ideal for those with an interest in the technical side of things. Note that the announcement doesn't make any reference to competitors needing to be members of the IET, so I assume you don't need to be a member to attend (this is the case for most IET meetings and lectures anyway). There is a cash bar, and a buffet provided.

(No, I don't get commission for promoting IET events, before anyone asks...)
