Bath Digital Festival 2020 gets underway

By Anita Jaynes on 20 October, 2020

One of the biggest celebrations of digital and tech in the South West has launched today.

From Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24th October, Bath Digital Festival is going virtual with a line-up of tech entrepreneurs, expert panels and discussions covering a wide range of topics across the industry.

Attendees might not be able to soak up the sights and sounds of our historical and innovative city this year, but there is still time to join the fun-packed online programme from the comfort of your own home or office.

This year, the Bath Digital Festival event series will focus on recovery, skills and talent. It is also launching a brand new Digital Skills Exchange programme, which aims to tackle the city’s digital talent and skills shortage by improving the flow of talent into businesses. By opening the doors of Bath businesses, showcasing the work they do and the digital roles available, the Digital Skills Exchange will help match individual skills and talents to the various digital and tech roles that exist.

If you’re looking to sharpen some skills, wondering who’s recruiting at the moment or you’re new to the tech scene, there’s an event for you. Learn to code, join an interactive workshop on artificial intelligence, discuss the modern ethics, join a masterclass in social media marketing or check out the latest tech.

Bath Digital Festival’s programme of events are free to attend this year, however the team behind the festival are politely asking for donations to support the programme. These can be made online. To see the full schedule and obtain your virtual event wristband visit: www.bathdigitalfestival.co.uk
