Speaking of the need for visionaries, the city of sails plays host to the XMediaLab event this year with a star studded lineup of speakers from the global digital innovation scene. The event comprises a day long conference on Friday focused on commercialising ideas and drawing upon a wealth of experience from entrepreneurs, technology investors and digital media commentators from around the world.
“If you are a digital media professional, media executive, producer, creator, technology wizard, entrepreneur, analyst or strategist of any kind, this is the one day you need to attend,” says event manager Megan Elliot. The conference is followed by a valuable networking event on Friday evening. During the weekend workshop, pre-selected projects will also receive advice and support from international mentors, including a number of the conference speakers. XML now also have a video channel so if you can’t make it to the event, check back later for short talks from previous event speakers.
I’m looking forward to a dose of inspiration – hope to see you there.
