Wind Down Wednesday – Virtual Social

LINX understand how important members consider the networking opportunities that come with our member meetings. With more and more conferences being staged online we didn’t want to lose that aspect of our events which is why we have collaborated with DJs in Tech to organise a special online social to end the LINX LIVE! day.

Wind Down Wednesday will be broadcast by live stream on YouTube from 16:00 BST on Wednesday 2nd September.

Wind Down Wednesday! - Live Stream from 4pm
