Sheffield Digital Showcase returns on Thursday the 21st March, to celebrate some of the terrific digital work that is produced here in Sheffield, and nearby.
Much of the work created here, from new software platforms to digital marketing campaigns, from video games to art installations, from immersive experiences to digitally fabricated products, is recognised around the world but little known in its home city - we want to see this work, find out how it came about and meet the people behind it!
In each of our Showcase events we invite the people responsible for producing 4 or 5 interesting things to come and tell us about them. We are tweaking the format for this event, and instead of short talks we're asking presenters to bring five images to show and discuss them in ten minutes of conversation.
The event will consist of three parts:
5:30-6pm - Arrival
This provides an opportunity to unwind after work, meet other people and enjoy a drink - either soft or alcoholic.
6:00-7:00pm - Presentations
Each presentation will be limited to 10 minutes, and must demonstrate a digital product, experience or service that has been made here in the city, or nearby, within the last 6 months.
There will also be a short update of upcoming events and initiatives, as well as an opportunity for members of the audience to promote relevant things.
7:00-8:00pm - Food and Networking.
Food will be served at 7pm, and the event aims to finish around 8pm.
Please watch this space over the coming days as we announce the first speakers!
The Platform is a free, open business social event- designed to allow a forum for creative, digital people from across the city to meet and enjoy interesting discussion with like-minded individuals. Each event is held immediately post-work at 17.30-19.00, and has complimentary food and drinks provided.
Our future events, collaborating with some of Sheffield's most interesting event organisers are detailed on the Platform Eventbrite Page
Platform is a collaboration between Business Sheffield, Sheffield Technology Parks and Showroom Workstation
