Fancy speaking or hosting an event?

Get involved in Bath Digital Festival 2020!

From 20 May, we're launching submissions for #BDF2020. If you've got something interesting and exciting to share or something creative to show off we'd love to hear from you. 

You can do a talk on your own, we can match you with other speakers or you can host your very own event. You might want to set up an exhibit, or showcase something in our Festival Hub - we're open to ideas. The world is your oyster!

To give you an idea of the kind of content we're looking for, we've split the festival in to 12 categories, with each topic listed below. Each category will cover events for newbies to experts, young and old, personal, business and techie so, any pitch or level is appropriate. 

If your idea is only just forming and you're not sure where to go or need a chat first, that's fine. Hit the button below to give us a call or send us a message.
