Digital Union would like to invite you to celebrate the anniversary of Digital Union’s reboot at That Was The Year That Was.

It’s now a whole year since Generator relaunched the North East’s Network for Digital Businesses and we have been making great strides towards putting the sector on the map both in and outside the region.

We’d like to share with you what we have been up to and how we believe how this will help the tech sector of the North grow.

We will also be outlining some of our plans for the future and how our growing membership will help achieve what we are setting out to do.

This will be a mixer for Digital Businesses large and small, friends from across the UK Tech sector, colleagues from the Education and public sector as well as those supporting us in the media.

And of course, in our usual style we will all have a drink while we are at it.
