BriteBillatMWC14

On May 8 Brite:Bill will be holding a special billing relationship workshop, specially designed for service providers that want to know more about billing and customer engagement.

We’re holding the event right in the heart of London’s thriving Tech City area – in the fabulous Hoxton Hotel on Great Eastern Street.  The hotel has become centre-piece of the astonishing renaissance of this part of East London – now the home to dozens of technology start-ups and tech gorillas. We thought it was a fitting location for our workshop – a great place to talk tech business but also unwind in what has become a vibrant hot-spot of London.

Contact info@britebill.com if you’d like to attend.

The purpose of the day is simple: to let us get to know you a bit better, and for us to collectively focus on how to make billing best-of-breed. The event will be relaxed, informal and fun – and we’ll treat you to some great food, chat and London’s bustling East End.

We can only accommodate around 20-30 guests on the day but we promise a series of stimulating discussions and presentations. If you can stay overnight we are planning to have dinner and drinks in a very special eatery just strolling distance from the hotel in London’s Shoreditch area.
