Hull Digital, the Digital Community for Kingston Upon Hull Hits 100 Members

Share Article

Kingston Upon Hull has been lacking a community devoted to online evangelists, technologists, developers, designers and start-ups. This changed at the beginning of 2009 with the launch of http://www.hulldigital.co.uk, and has made a strong impression on the city and the people who are involved in the digital and online space. It has just reached the milestone of 100 members.

The MeetUps have had a very enthusiastic response:

" Brilliant meeting, with some great speakers, who all did great especially as it was the first with speakers. Really looking forward to the next one. Excellent work to all involved. "

" Another great meet-up, many thanks to Jon for organising. A good speaker which gave an opportunity for a much needed discussion on the provision of local communication services."

"Enjoyed the opportunity to hear Richard Griffiths present a human, humble and open minded voice for the KC brand. It can only be good to engage with an interested community like Hull Digital to develop new insights into what creative solutions can be found/supported to make Hull and its Business and Residential users truly committed fans."

Richard Griffiths, the Head of Sales and Marketing for Karoo Consumer, from Kingston Communications, who recently spoke at a Hull Digital MeetUp said, "Hull Digital provides a great forum for the city's technology specialists to share ideas and build business relationships. As such it provides KC with wonderful opportunity to open up communications with our customers in order to ensure that our services meet their evolving needs. The fantastic attendance at the latest Hull Digital MeetUp shows that there is a real appetite for the digital community to work with collaboratively with KC in order to drive Hull forward as a digital city."

"We want to thank the 100 members of Hull Digital, and all the people who have attended the MeetUps and contributed to the website," said Jon Moss, Hull Digital's Founder.
