About the awards

The 2017 UK City of Culture has a burgeoning reputation as the epicentre of East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire's digital tech community. According to Tech City UK's "Tech Nation 2017" report - the most comprehensive analysis of the UK digital tech ecosystem - Hull is helping to secure the UK's position as the digital capital of Europe.

The city and wider East Riding are together seen as a hotspot for digital activity, with start-ups taking root here in increasing numbers and established businesses enjoying unprecedented growth.

KCOM and the Hull Live are therefore proud to host for a fourth year The Digital Awards, which celebrate and highlight the creative strides being made in the development and use of digital technology.

The awards will bring together the movers and shakers of the digital community for another exciting event to recognise the inspirational companies that are at the cutting edge of digital business in the region.

With 11 categories covering everything from best mobile app to best digital marketing communication, KCOM and the Hull Live invite businesses, organisations and individuals from all sectors to enter, presenting a comprehensive showcase of the innovative spirit and indomitable pride that exist in Hull in East Yorkshire. The Digital Awards 2018 will be held at the soon to be opened Hull Venue, our area's newest and most prestigious venue. Hosting the evening of entertainment will be presenter and comedian Mark Dolan. We're pleased to welcome back to the stage, Digital Ambassador, David Keel as our keynote speaker.

Tickets for the event are available at £35 per person which includes a drinks reception, street food, entertainment and the opportunity to network following the awards ceremony. To purchase tickets or contact the events team on 01482 315300 or visit here.
