Digital Shoreditch has kicked off in East Londons Tech City. Now in its third year, the two week festival features speakers from Google, Adobe, and Ogilvy & Mather, alongside a whole host of start-ups. 

Our very own David Murphy will be speaking at the event, at 11:48am on Wednesday, on the topic of why mobile is still so hard to sell, and why brands still dont seem to get it.

“The Digital Shoreditch festival will bring together all those movers and shakers who are helping to keep the capital at the cutting edge of the world of digital technology,” said Mayor of London Boris Johnson. “London’s tech industry is a vital component of my plan to deliver jobs and growth for London and this event is a chance to showcase where the opportunities for new innovations lie. The Festival provides an opportunity for everyone involved in the tech and digital industries to come together, share insights and promote their success stories to international companies who are increasingly seeing the Tech City cluster as a fantastic place to invest in.”
