Headline sponsor plans for the region’s largest digital jobs and skills festival

We are excited to announce that Brighton-based global digital marketing agency iCrossing will be the headline sponsor for Talent2017: the region’s largest digital and skills festival.

iCrossing’s CEO, Mark Iremonger said:
“There are fantastic career opportunities for young people in the digital, technology and media sector. As a market leader in digital marketing and a big employer in Brighton we’re delighted to sponsor an event that attracts young talent into our industry.”

Talent2017 is a 3-day festival dedicated to helping businesses in the region attract, train and retain the digital talent they need to grow their business. It will run for three days from Wednesday 15th to Friday 17th March 2017 and will include a jobs and skills fair and is expected to attract over 1,000 people looking for jobs in digital; a Skills Summit for businesses to share and discuss best practice in training and retaining staff; and Experience Day, giving school students and other young people a hands-on opportunity to understand more about what working in a digital company means.

Wired Sussex Managing Director Phil Jones said:
“It is great to welcome iCrossing as the headline sponsor for Talent2017. iCrossing have played a core role in the development of the digital sector in this region. It is clear that central to their current strategies for growth lies an understanding of the importance of having well trained, happy and motivated staff. We are very pleased to have their support for the largest digital skills festival in the region.”

There are still some opportunities for other businesses who want to support the Talent2017.
