LONDON, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading Testing and Assurance specialist names Test magazine and Professional Tester as key media sponsors for London's October event.
Sogeti UK, a leading provider of professional technology services is pleased to confirm agreements with leading industry publications Test magazine and Professional Tester for media sponsorship around TestExpo™ 2013 which will take place in London on 24th October.
This announcement comes a month after Sogeti revealed a partnership agreement with conference and event organizer UNICOM to deliver the UK's biggest and most renowned software testing event, which is now in its 17th year.
UNICOM was established almost 20 years ago, and is responsible for key events in the testing calendar including the Agile Business Conference and Next Generation Testing event. Their heritage and depth of specialist knowledge in the testing arena is illustrated by their success as one of the world's longest-running IT conference organisers, and their involvement in TestExpo™ promises to enhance and grow the event.
Since the first event in 1996, TestExpo™ has grown to become a respected platform for testing news and innovation, and a valuable forum for testing professionals internationally, with launch events in Denmark and Norway earlier in 2013. Each year, TestExpo™ includes a full programme of presentations from software development and testing industry experts and attracts up to 250 attendees.
Professional Tester returns as a media sponsor for 2013 after supporting TestExpo™ 2012. First published more than a decade ago, Professional Tester is considered one of the most trusted sources of European software testing and QA news, trends, processes, methodologies and opinion. It is published bi-monthly in both paper and digital formats, with news updates also available at http://www.professionaltester.com.
Under a new partnership for this year's TestExpo, Sogeti has also agreed sponsorship with Test Magazine; a bi-monthly publication authored by some of the more renowned members of the software testing, software development and IT industries. The magazine, which has a circulation of around 12,000 professionals, is supported by news-based website Test online and aims to raise the profile of testing while giving a true reflection of issues affecting the software testing market. As part of this agreement, Sogeti is excited to announce sponsorship of The European Software Testing Awards (TESTA) in November which will be the first specialized testing awards ceremony, hosted by the publishers of the magazine.
"Test Magazine is delighted to be supporting TestExpo. Such collaboration is a natural fit as TestExpo promises to be a thrilling content-driven event - and with the readers of Test Magazine always keen to swap and share advice, and further increase their knowledge banks, working with TestExpo ensures the whole industry benefits. In addition to this, Sogeti have gone on to sponsor The European Software Testing Awards - a programme designed to recognise and celebrate European wide testing excellence, and it should come as no surprise that Test Magazine and TestExpo are leading the way in content delivery," says Grant Farrell of Test magazine.
Lara Irwin, Head of UK Marketing & Alliances at Sogeti UK, concluded: "We're delighted to have renewed our media sponsorship agreement with Professional Tester for TestExpo 2013, and are thrilled to have Test Magazine on board for the first time. The combined exposure that both of these magazines will bring will no doubt have an extremely positive effect on this year's TestExpo."
