The live programme of events has come to a close at Digital City Festival, which united the digital community on one virtual platform to hear from influential figures, network and collaborate.

The last day of live content was broadcast from MediaCityUK yesterday to the network, which hosted a vast range of thought leadership from international figures.

See the full highlights from the second week of Digital City Festival below.

All this content remains available on-demand on the Digital City Network - which you can join here - alongside continuing opportunities to network and engage with a diverse selection of companies.

Content this week included Tech Nation’s panel on growing a more diverse business; a focus on immersive entertainment from MediaCityUK featuring Simon Smith of Team17 and Richard Wormwell from dock10; a discussion about addressing the digital divide; and a keynote on human connection in digital transformation.

It closed on Thursday afternoon with a recap hosted by Kate Cocker and featuring an address from the Minister for Digital Infrastructure, with Kate thanking everyone who helped make the event series and recapping the week’s events.

Cultural events this week also included a session from Manchester Jazz Festival on April 19th, plus StreamGM’s talent showcase FLOW, which marked the finale and closing party of Digital City Festival.
