DIGIT Expo is Back | Just One Day to Go!

Michael Behr


Scotland’s largest annual tech event is back, featuring 40 speakers, 50 exhibitors and 1,000+ delegates.

DIGIT Expo, Scotland’s largest IT and digital showcase, is taking place tomorrow.

On November 23rd, DIGIT will be taking over the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), when over 1,000 delegates will come together for a packed programme of talks, networking and business engagement.

The event will combine all the key verticals within the information technology sector, including: cybersecurity, cloud, data, AI and IT services – promising to be a must-attend for all technology and digital practitioners across these disciplines.

With the last DIGIT Expo having taken place in 2019, attendees will have a lot to catch up on. The past year and a half have seen some of the biggest social, political, economic and technological upheavals in a decade. Across the four stages, in the exhibition halls and the networking areas, people will discuss lessons learned from the last 18 months and how these can be applied in the future.

DIGIT Director Ray Bugg said: “Having restarted physical events this year, DIGIT Expo provides the perfect opportunity for people from all over Scotland’s tech industry to meet and network.

“Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the tech sector has emerged, in many cases, stronger than it was before. Companies, big and small, helped support the economy, keep people working and ensure society continued to function. Everyone has insights into how they navigated the past two years, and what the coming years will bring.

“DIGIT Expo will provide the perfect forum for us to share these insights, and to reconnect in-person after so many months of virtual meetings and digital fatigue. We’ve got an exceptional line-up for this year, making this a must-attend event for everyone in the tech industry.”
