Leeds Digital is about promoting the City Region all year round. The City has a bright, thriving and growing tech sector, and the huge success of Leeds Digital Festival (in 25-27 April and 18-29 September) has helped put Leeds on the map. But the tech sector doesn’t stop and that’s why there’s now a platform for year round activity Leeds Digital.
As part of the festival, we will host a health and social care focused roundtable in partnership with our members Tunstall, part of the Digital Health and Care day conference organised by Leeds Council on 25 April (which aims to bring together experts and enthusiasts in digital health and care to explore the latest developments and trends in this rapidly evolving space), to a techUK flagship Health and Social Care Industry Dinner on the evening of 27 April. Find more details about our dinner here.
