Event Production

Underland event production begins with understanding your goals and recommending the best event format and variant to meet them. We then offer a full service from event design, logistical planning and recruitment through to delivery and reporting.

We have years of experience in delivering events that balance the needs of developers and business goals. The Underland Events team can take your idea and realise it with experience, efficiency and creativity.

The value of hackathons

Hackathons are invention marathons which bring technical people together to generate unique solutions in a fixed period of time.

Research & Development

Hackathons support R&D by generating solutions to business challenges

Raise Awareness

Have attendees work towards solving challenges for meaningful social impact

Adoption & Feedback

Encourage adoption of your technologies and gain valuable feedback


Engage with, and understand skills, of potential technical candidates

PR & Marketing

Create buzz around running a fun and unique event format in your sector

Support Sales

Show potential customers the power of your technology to support sales

Through our partner team Underland Dev we also provide services to take hackathon projects and further develop them to production-ready systems.

Our Projects

As well as our client projects, we run three Underland events a year. You Got This is a conference for early-career developers on the non-technical skills needed for a happy, healthy work life, such as handling anxiety, managing money and self care.

BASH Festival of Code is a free week-long coding festival for 13-17 year olds across the UK. We aim to foster technical young people and give them the space and support to further build their skills.

20 GOTO 10 is a one-off community hackathon celebrating retro technology. It will be replaced by another community event in 2020.
