DIGIT is gearing up to host its largest-ever technology and digital event this week.
Set to take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) on the 7th of November, the conference will offer an array of keynotes, seminars, panels and discussions covering the hottest technology topics of the moment.
More than 1,800 tech leaders, academics, innovators and enthusiasts registered for DIGIT’s inaugural expo in 2018, and more than 2,000 people have already signed up to attend this year’s event.
Speaking ahead of the event, Ray Bugg, founder of DIGIT, said: “It’s incredible to see the growth of events like this in Scotland. To surpass 2,000 registrations for a single event exceeds all our expectations and just illustrates the enormous appetite for engagement across our national technology community.
“We’re hugely grateful to all of the speakers, sponsors and supporters who have rallied alongside us to make this possible. We look forward to continuing to build on this momentum and are excited to see where we can go from here.”
The DIGIT Expo 2019 programme – spread over five stages, an exhibition hall and networking area – will explore the evolution of digital technology and its impact on business and society; from presentations on key emerging areas such as AI, IoT, 5G, Robotics and Voice, to frontline insight on Cloud, UX and Cyber Security.
Cultural issues will also be a core talking point, encompassing organisational ethics and soft skills to mental health and burnout.
