Digital 2017 at Tramshed Tech 18-19 September

This year’s Digital 2017 will be hosted at Tramshed Tech with a new festival feel – taking in investors, innovators, smart cities and street food.

Digital is a two-day event for industry, innovators and investors. The event is a dynamic mix of interactive workshops, round table discussions, pitches, expos, networking and street food and is attended by the movers, shakers, doers, and makers of the tech industry.

Each year, the event attracts a global audience of individuals and organisations that come together to push boundaries in business and drive innovation. The key themes of this year’s event are The Internet of Things (IoT), Security, Smart Cities, Talent, and Investors.

Start-ups will have the opportunity to tell their tale to investors looking for the next big thing from a stage set in a cinema, while workshops on AI, 5G, digital manufacturing, growth finance and an investor breakfast will take to the water on a boat sailing from Cardiff Bay down the River Taff.

Pendyris Street, the road immediately outside Tramshed Tech will be closed to traffic, with an Expo taking place in 13 shipping containers. A selection of Street Food traders will be pitched up bringing tacos and more to the tech-heads.


The first keynotes announced include:

  • Jacqueline de Rojas, techUK’s President, Computer Weekly Hall of Famer, Non-Executive Director of Rightmove and adviser for the Department for Exiting the EU, will headline one of four keynote sessions over the two day event focusing on talent, skills and the future of work. 
  • George Berkowski will share his experiences in Insuretech and Fintech and ‘How to Build a Billion Dollar App’.  George is the Chief Product Officer at GoCompare. He has built and sold businesses in manned space flight, online dating, transportation and mobile apps. 
  • A panel sharing first-hand experience from investors and entrepreneurs on how people with big ideas can bag investment will include former Dragon’s Den star and Red Letter Days entrepreneur Rachel Elnaugh. At just 24, Rachel created the business from scratch on a shoestring, but after million pound profits, awards and TV fame, was forced into administration.  Since then, with her book ‘Business Nightmares’, she’s become one of the world’s leading experts on the entrepreneurship journey.  
  • Inma Martinez, considered by Fortune and TIME as one of the world’s leading digital media strategists, built the first I. platform for personalising mobile data services and is currently a Venture Partner at Deep Science Ventures. Inma now leads a number of A.I. and data projects in smart cities, intelligent homes, precision livestock farming and human analytics for product innovation and she’ll share her vision for how technology can make the future development of the places in which we live better.
  • The next phase of Internet of Things as the creation of business value- not just the number of connected devices- will be tackled by Matt Webb. Matt’s the managing director of R/GA Internet of Things Venture Studio UK, a start-up accelerator in London focused on new breakthroughs in the space.

The full agenda taking in further keynotes, workshop, panels, roundtables and more will be announced in the coming weeks by Innovation Point. You can view the agenda here.
