18-20 June, Brighton UK

A Skills Festival for the Digital Sector

Powered by Wired Sussex

Talent Fest 2019 is the largest skills festival for the digital sector in the South East, developed to help digital, media and tech businesses in the region attract, train and retain the talent they need in order to thrive and deliver great work.

Why Talent Fest 2019 is important

We know that digital businesses success is down to attracting, training, and retaining the most talented people. But finding that talent – the people with the right skills and attitudes – and helping them to grow with the business is often the single biggest challenge faced. That’s where Talent Fest comes in.

This three-day festival is designed to ensure the growth of our region’s digital industry is not hindered by a lack of resources in our city, by connecting businesses with the talent they need and providing a platform for them to better understand how they can maintain and build stronger, more inclusive workforces.
