Being Digital -
Being-Digital is the digital (Internet, mobile, TV etc.) event of the
summer - held on the 10th June.
This one day conference will bring the best digital executives, entrepreneurs and investors in the UK together for one day of discussion and debate around 7 core themes (social, search, advertising, identity, content, location and retail)
They'll be around 30 cutting-edge demo companies on stage and all day demos of their products and services, to a 200 strong audience, with two major names, helping and compering.
