One Love: Wired Sussex joins the Onedigital alliance

one digital Wired Sussex has accepted an invitation by digital media alliance Onedigital to join Manchester Digital, Bristol Media and London’s D-Media as its fourth principal member.

The four organisations represent over 5,000 digital media companies between them, and the addition of Wired Sussex puts Onedigital well on track in its ambition to create a single body to champion the UK’s digital media industry, nationally and internationally. Wired Sussex will take a key role in helping the organisation devise a strategy to place digital at the centre of the UK’s growth ambitions.

Onedigital spokesperson Gina Fegan said “Onedigital’s ambition to provide a unified voice for the digital industry and make the UK a global digital leader is significantly strengthened by the addition of the Brighton cluster. London, Manchester, Bristol and Brighton really are the key drivers for the UK’s digital media industry.”

The Events Horizon

event image

Our newly upgraded online events calendar is up and running. With so many digital and media events now happening locally across a wide range of subjects, the idea is that this calendar becomes a really useful resource for everyone in the community – a one stop shop telling you not just about Wired Sussex events, but about all relevant local events.

If you are running an event, you can upload full details of it to the calendar. You can also use the calendar to avoid date clashes with other similar events. If you know of an event we don’t have on there, let us know and we will add it.

A big thanks to our friends at Makemedia (without whom...) for all their hard work in helping us create the calendar.

Please use it, abuse it and let us know what you think.
