Digital 2014 event at Celtic Manor in June

A technology event is set to return to Newport’s Celtic Manor in June with the aim of helping Welsh businesses and young people to use computers for economic growth.

Digital 2014, which held its first two-day event at the venue in 2013, is expecting 1,100 delegates from businesses and the education sector in Wales.

Tom Kelly, chair of the Welsh government’s ICT (information and communications technology) sector panel, said: “Economies all over the world have woken up to the enabling power of ICT and it’s crucial that Wales remains ahead of the curve.

“Digital 2014 will help ensure a digital culture is positioned at the centre of Welsh education and industry to secure our economic future and position Wales at the very forefront of the digital revolution.”

Edwina Hart, Welsh Government minister for the economy, said: “The ICT industry in Wales is a key sector that could generate a further £1.5bn to the economy over the next five years.

“Digital 2014 will provide a platform for ensuring businesses have the know-how to harness cutting-edge technologies to boost their bottom lines.”
