This year’s Brighton Digital Festival will be taking place between Thursday 14th September and Friday 13th October.
TDC are excited to be working with some of Brighton’s most exciting digital businesses and educators to create a Tech Trail around the city. The trail will inspire young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to learn more about the possibilities of tech in the city by offering them the chance to step through the doors of different tech businesses and see first-hand what a digital workplace looks like.
Find out how young people can join the Tech Trail on the Brighton Digital Festival website.
And in addition to this, we have teamed up with Propellernet search marketing agency, Block Builders and the British Airways i360 to offer a fun, interactive tech experience to five classes from primary schools in some of Brighton & Hove’s most disadvantaged areas.

TDC’s Business Development Manager Ruth Chapman says “we’ve just had our first meeting to kick-start the TDC Tech Trail and it was great to see so many companies engage with the idea of opening their doors so that young people could experience tech in Brighton. We hope that visiting companies like Drum, Brandwatch, Propeller Net, Gene Commerce and many more, will inspire young people and help them realise the possibilities in tech as a future career”.
We’re looking forward to it and will keep you posted on how the events go.
