A TECHNOLOGY conference, featuring Dragons’ Den presenter Evan Davis as the keynote speaker, is due to take place in Hull later this year.

Hull Digital Live (HD Live) will be held at the Allam Lecture Theatre, University of Hull, on Thursday, November 1, and will explore how advancing technology can be harnessed to fuel economic growth in the Humber region.

Other speakers include Horace Dediu, founder and author of Asymco.com, technology journalist Bobbie Johnson, Viewpoint Industries co-founders Keir Whitaker and Elliot Jay Stocks and FreeAgent product director Roan Lavery.

HD Live founder Jon Moss said: “Our vision is for the Humber region to become a leading hub for technology, skills innovation and enterprise.

“How do we get there? Well that is one of the questions HD Live will seek to answer by exploring the different ways that we can combine technology, business and education to capitalise on current opportunities and build a solid platform for future economic growth in Hull and East Yorkshire.”
