05 October 2020

Reboot 2020 is a new free digital forum, running from 14th to 16th October. Digital Lancashire is hosting a series of seminars, sessions and roundtables featuring key Lancashire businesses and is designed to reimagine the future of digital in Lancashire.

Digital Lancashire hosts Reboot 2020 in mid October

This three day event aims to engage Digital Lancashire’s members and the wider digital & tech community in conversations that help us to better understand the current context of the digital sector in the county. The forum aims to support the sector in considering how we reboot 2020 and go from there.

The learnings will not only reshape the current Digital Lancashire Manifesto but will set the scene for an even bigger and better 2021 Digital Lancashire Festival, celebrating and  shining a light on our digital ambition for Lancashire.

The event is being hosted in partnership with Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Digital Skills Partnership, Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Boost Business Lancashire, MHA Moore & Smalley, Hiscox and ABGi.

The guest line up for Reboot 2020 includes key figures from across Lancashire discussing important, relevant issues for our context. This includes diversity and inclusion, the future of the workplace, the future of digital, as well as addressing key, critical issues that impact the microclimates of our region.

Ed Matthews-Gentle of Creative Lancashire will be participating in two of the events: Through the Looking Glass on Thursday 15th October and Digital Union on Friday 16th October 2020.
