IS DIGITAL HUB JUST FOR GEEKS?

Absolutely not, Digital Hub is a tech event for non-techies. We try and take new (or old) tech that most businesses are using and explain it in a jargon-free way. We hope you will leave smarter than when you arrived and that the content is all relevant to what you use (or could use) in your day-to-day business life.

"Useful technology made simple"

As a hub that spans across multiple sectors, we welcome businesses of all types and industries, including IT & Web Agencies, Construction, Aerospace, and more. Whether you're a tech company looking to network with peers or a law firm looking to enhance your digital presence, Digital Hub is the perfect destination for you.

And for students, we are excited to offer free attendance as a way to invest in the future of digital. Join our community and discover the endless possibilities of digital for yourself.
