“I don’t think I’ve seen a better collection of smart city, tech, data and digital design events than at Leeds Digital Festival, anywhere else in the world.”

Tom Forth, Head of Data The Open Data Institute (Leeds)

Returning in 2021 for our sixth year, and following the success of the April “mini-fest”, we’ll be hosting a two-week programme packed with tech content this Autumn. Join us September 20th – 1st October as we invite the tech world’s best and brightest to come together and show the world our dynamic digital sector.

The 2020 Festivals saw over 45,000 attendees from over 60 different countries join us to celebrate all things digital, and this year’s Festival will be bigger and better than ever. 

With an expected 300 events on offer, covering absolutely everything in the tech world, it’s an event not to be missed. So, whether you’re into coding, fintech, social media, AI, healthtech, data, start-ups, digital music, cyber security or AR/VR, there’s something for you in the September programme. 

Fancy getting a bit more stuck in? If you’re interested in opening minds, why not open your doors and host a Leeds Digital Festival event? Anyone with a passion for digital can host an event – virtual or physical – and it’s free to do so. Check out the Event Organiser’s Guide to Leeds Digital Festival, and send us the event details via the Event Submissions Form. Or if you’d like to get involved but you’re not sure you want to host an event of your own, you can submit your details via our Speaker Form and we’ll do our best to match you up with relevant speaking opportunities.

“Collaboration in the tech industry just makes sense – putting lots of great minds together means we can share ideas, learn from each other and make better digital decisions. Leeds is jam-packed with fantastic technology companies so Leeds Digital Festival is the perfect way to bring us all together.”

Charlotte Knowles, Managing Director at TPP
