Hull Digital Live - Sun Startup Essentials Sponsoring

Successful businesses already leverage the Internet; building internationally recognised online brands and communicating effectively to ensure their survival in a rough global economy. It's about more than simple online presence though, digital technologies enable business leaders to steer their companies towards achieving lower operating costs, higher levels of profitability and greater presence in the marketplace. A digital business with a developed and recognizable brand is a strong business.

It is not all about global companies and brands. Every business needs to understand the internet and technology, the digital realm, so that they are not left behind. Start today what your competition may well have been doing for months.

Businesses need to change their habits - there is no need to wait, and every reason not to.

Hull Digital Live is the first Digital And Technology Conference in East Yorkshire. It is delivering world class speakers on our doorstep.

For anyone with an interest in business or technology it's going to be a fantastic event, and if your business needs to do more with technology / digital / web, (and who's doesn't?) then you cannot afford to miss it.

October 14th 2009 - Hull
