Talent Fest 2020: Become a Supporter

Increase your brand awareness and position your business as an employer of choice.

We're delighted to be bringing our annual digital skills festival, Talent Fest, back in 2020! Now in its 4th consecutive year, the festival takes place 27th April - 1st May and includes:

  • A Jobs Fair to help businesses recruit and build their employer awareness.
  • A Portfolio Clinic to enable businesses and freelancers to provide advice and guidance to creative talent looking to enter or grow in our sector.
  • A Skills Summit that brings businesses together to discuss, debate and understand the issues around accessing and growing the right talent.

The festival acts as a great platform for you to raise your company profile and increase brand awareness, whether you’re recruiting now or in the future.

Supporting the festival gives you a unique opportunity to position your company as a key member in the region's digital sector, access new audiences, and build relationships with influential digital businesses, industry partners, educational institutes, and communities.
