What is the MK Digital Summit?

In 2018, 123 Internet Group hosted the first MK Digital Summit following the need to share the latest digital marketing and technology trends with other industry peers and mind-minded professionals. The event was held at the prestigious Chicheley Hall and featured a host of key note speakers from a wide range of industries, including Barclays and SproutSocial.

Following the success and attendance for the first event, we took the plunge and increased the capacity for attendance moving the summit to the Odean Cinema in Milton Keynes. With capacity for over 200 – the event was another huge success.

Moving onto 2020…and now one of the featured event’s during the MK Tech Fringe we are pleased to announce that the MK Digital Summit is back for 2020. Bigger. Better. Bolder!

Once again, this year’s MK Digital Summit will be raising much needed funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The charity aims to keep families together, close to their children in hospital, by providing free ‘home away from home’ accommodation and support.
