Leeds creative agency boosts region's biggest digital festival with £15k investment
A creative agency in Marshall Court, Leeds has partnered with Leeds Digital Festival to create a digital marketing strategy and presence for the event, as it enters its fourth year.
Tall has invested £15k in the project which will see the build of a new website, ahead of the festival’s opening on April 23, 2019.
Leeds Digital Festival is a two-week-long event, championing the technology sector through meetups, seminars and workshops, hosted by the city’s businesses and entrepreneurs.
In 2018, Leeds Digital Festival welcomed 20,000 visitors to 170 events at 60 venues across the city.
Director of Tall, Guy Utley, said: “Leeds is a technology powerhouse, bursting with talented entrepreneurs and businesses in this sector.
“Through our partnership with Leeds Digital Festival, we’re hoping to not only showcase our own talents in the digital sector but also support our fellow digital businesses that operate in this region.
“We are proud to play our part in working with this fantastic event and strengthening Leeds’ position as a hub for tech and digital excellence.”
Leeds Digital Festival’s new website, built by Tall, will be used as a platform to increase awareness about the event and further cement Leeds as the digital capital of the North.
Showcasing events, sponsorship news and highlights from 2018, the website has been created using a three-step process which includes launching an initial holding page, followed by a promotional website and an events-focused platform to build interest around the event.
Tall will also provide technical support during the event itself and continue to support Leeds Digital Festival with website hosting and certification.
Leeds Digital Festival director, Stuart Clarke added: “We’re incredibly excited to work alongside Tall; they’re clearly very talented and the team has a lot of experience when it comes to supporting businesses with their digital strategies.
“The website has given us a platform to celebrate Leeds Digital Festival and the brilliant digital culture that we have in Leeds.”
