Our programme for this year’s Leeds Digital Festival is arguably our strongest yet, with four events at Nexus where every innovator can champion and celebrate the city’s vibrant digital and tech culture.
We’ve joined forces with The Data Shed, the University of Leeds and Leeds Digital Festival to bring together the ‘great and the good’ of the region’s MedTech ecosystem. Join us to celebrate the important work being done across medical technologies, and to explore challenges and opportunities facing the region. The event brings together founders, start-ups, clinicians, policy makers and other key stakeholders within the MedTech & Leeds Tech ecosystem.
