Northern Media Summit – Leeds

Breaking New Ground – How is the North including the Isle of Man defining the future of Digital Media?

Barclays BankNorthInvest and Isle of Media have come together to hold two events to showcase the creativity, innovation and sheer brilliance of the Digital Media sector in the North. As highlighted in Nesta’s Creative Nation, creative capitals should work together to grow their creative industries.

With debate around the move of Channel 4 out of London, and the success of Salford as a media hub, media, digital innovation and content creation are all areas where we as a region and its entrepreneurs excel.

We aim to make more noise, and petition for Digital Media to be a core stream for the Northern Powerhouse, to bring increased investment, jobs and skills to the North, by hosting key speakers and exhibitors to share their latest exciting media projects.

Please join us for this curation of all things Digital Media, celebrating the combined growth together as creative neighbours within Northern landscape.

If you would prefer to attend the Manchester event on the 2nd May, please register here.

The Angel Hub

Platform is a reinvention of a Leeds landmark right at the heart of the city, designed to bring together creatively-minded businesses and drive collaboration and innovation.

Run in partnership with NorthInvest, which seeks to build a stronger and more connected tech investor and start-up community across the North of England, it will be a focal point for the early stage investor community in the Leeds city region, sharing good practice and invigorating the local investment ecosystem.
