Get Digital North East - a celebration of creative and digital media

This Thursday, 17th March, marks the launch of the North East’s first GET DIGITAL festival: a celebration of the Creative and Digital Media section in the region.

The festival will showcase over 100 Creative and Digital Media companies: from App developers to software engineers. The event promises to have something for everyone, in this immensely exciting cutting edge industry sector.

School and college pupils can learn more about the industry, university students and apprentices can talk to potential employers, and businesses can showcase their innovations to investors, and the public. Everything from Digital Workshops and Jobs Courts, to Playground areas promising hands-on interactivity, and Innovation Labs, are on offer.

I would recommend all, who are interested, to go along to The CastleGate centre, and receive a real insight into the Creative, and Digital Media sector in the North East. The North East is a real leader in technology, with a regional turnover of £1.7 billion a year, and this festival promises an ideal opportunity for all to see what this ever evolving industry has to offer. I will sadly be stuck in the House of Commons so I cannot go.
