On 12th February, the Grow for It in East Kent campaign went to Canary Wharf in London to hold the Established Meets Emerging event. The purpose of the morning was to showcase East Kent as the ideal place for both starting and growing a digital business.

Here in the region we are in a fantastic location with the countryside on our doorstep and the sea within a stone’s throw, yet we have super fast access to London on HS1.

Luke was invited to speak at the event as Sleeping Giant Media is a fantastic case study for the campaign. See our previous post for more information on the event itself.

We’ve created this video of the event to show you what it was all about:

During the morning, the hashtag #eastkentdigital was employed. Here’s a selection of tweets from throughout the morning to give you a flavour of how the event went:

Over to you…

Did you attend the event? What did you think? Even if you didn’t go to Canary Wharf, what do you think about East Kent as the next digital hub?
