Perhaps every place wants to be known for its digitalness, but we know about Leeds and Harrogate, and what’s going on in our two centres is thrilling us. I know, lawyers should be boring unless they are on US television, but we can’t help it. The events that pull these together, this month, are the Yorkshire Business Market, in Harrogate on 18th April, and then the Leeds Digital Festival week beginning 25 April – for the whole week.
At the YBM for the first time there is a Digital Café, supporting event hosted by Google and Microsoft. Working hand in hand with Harrogate Borough Council we (Berwins) have summoned a gathering of Harrogate Digital – more a concept than a thing, but something we’ve tried to make happen for many years. Now may be the time, and there is a raft of FinTech, software, digital agency and other digital businesses in the area. So if you are digital in Harrogate, join us at stand C10 at 12.15.
Oh, and then Leeds Digital Festival – this is year one of the resurrected festival, but it is going to be huge this year, and huge-er next year. In conjunction with Live at Leeds, the 10 year old music festival, there is a bewildering array of around 50 different events, supported by some lovely sponsors, all over the city. The full range is here: http://leedsdigitalfestival.org/ . We are talking part in three events - on 26th, we bring you a session on Intellectual Property, with patent attorneys Appleyard Lees - here for booking: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/intellectual-proper... - 8.30 am as part of Leeds Dock’s Breakfast Bytes series; and on 28th, Information Security or the Alternative [clue – there is no alternative] - same time, same place, same series https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/information-securit... And in between we’re going to be available at a drop-in at the Digital Garage, also at Leeds Dock in the afternoon, as part of the Leeds Dock SEO event.
That’s just what we’re doing – and so many other people and companies are pitching in. It’s a good time to be digital in Yorkshire.
