Emerging technology through collaboration; creating a ‘digital high street’ rich in 'data insights'

Wednesday 7th July, 2pm - 3pm
Sign up here https://us02web.zoom.us/meetin...

As technology has developed it has become more accessible, and with the UK government making budget available through schemes such as the Town Deal Fund and Future High Street Fund, we believe we’re about to see an explosion in digital high streets. Some BIDs have already started to think about this and have began the process of digitalising their high street. However, some haven't due to budget, and some not really knowing exactly what 'the digital high street' means.

With this webinar, you can hear from guests that have already started to create a digital high street and what this could look like for your places.
