We’re praying that the sun keeps its hat on just a little bit longer, as on Thursday (18th June), 6.30 - 8.30pm we’re holding our fourth Digital Garden Party #DigiGardenParty
We started running these parties in September 2014 and initially we weren’t too sure what to expect. There didn’t seem to be any events like this in Chester so we thought maybe there wasn’t the appetite for it. However, we’re pleased to say we’ve been absolutely bowled over with the support we’ve received and continue to receive - each time we run a Garden Party, we pack out the fabulous Oddfellows hotel in the centre of Chester.
The event is packed out with people from all corners of the digital industry including PR, Photography, Film, Ecommerce, App Development, Digital illustrators…the list goes on. And it’s not all fun, although it is fun! We’ve made some genuinely useful connections, which have led to great partnerships and we currently have a very talented design student doing work experience with us, after our design director met him at the last party.
We’re also thrilled to see more Manchester-based people travelling over. We hope this continues to grow now we have specialist, Manchester-based hosting company Melbourne sponsoring!
We’re especially excited for June’s event as we’ve hired the upstairs bar, which is completely private and has its own balcony. It’s the hottest space in the hotel, literally!
We'll also hold a fun 'Digital Debate' - our digital heavyweights Andy Porter from Veracity Digital TV and Charlie Oakham from Mercury Legal will debate Outsource vs In-house. With just three minutes each and a 2 minute retort to knock each other off their pedestal (with words, this isn’t gladiators) who'll come out on top.
So, if you fancy joining us all you need to do is sign up so we know you’re coming. We hope to see you there.
