Brighton Digital Festival: September 1-28Brighton Dome will again act as a hub for the ever-popular Brighton Digital Festival.

The festival is a month-long celebration of international digital culture which runs from September 1 to September 28, with a range of events in a host of venues across the city.

Acting as a central hub, Brighton Dome has already confirmed seven events, with potentially more to come.

These include a one-day BrightonSEO conference and training sessions, with talks from some of the best speakers in the world of search, on September 11 and 12, and a three-day conference for web designers and coders, called Reasons to be Creative, on September 1 to 3.

On September 4 the Dome hosts Improving Reality, a day of talks by thinkers from technology, film, education and art, with dConstruct 2014 taking place the following day with a theme of Living with the Network.

Other highlights at the Dome include Brighton Mini Maker Faire on September 6, The Brighton Digital Marketing Festival on September 18 and Let’s Get Real Conference, also on September 18.

Andrew Comben, chief executive of Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival, said the venue was only too happy to get involved. He said: “I am delighted that Brighton Dome is the 2014 hub venue for Brighton’s Digital Festival.

“We recently launched enterprise class wifi across all five venues so that we are equipped to handle up to 10,000 concurrent users, perfectly timed for the start of the festival.”

Brighton Digital Festival is supported by Arts Council England, Brighton and Hove City Council and American Express.
