Digital media event is first for Lincoln

Social: A digital media conference in Lincoln is offering local businesses industry insight from various global experts.

Digital media conference Linc Up Live is set to take place in Lincoln on Friday, September 9, promising to deliver advice and information from global experts to local business owners.

The unique day-long conference, taking place at The Showroom on Tritton Road, has been organised by local industry experts Celia Lacy, Glenn Le Santo, Andy Clayton and Tim Downing. The city event will see several international speakers delivering their thoughts on digital and social media and how it can benefit business.

Of those speaking at the event are Kate Day, Social Media & Engagement Editor for the Telegraph Media Group, Julien Fourgeaud from Rovio (of Angry Birds fame), social media expert Mazi Nadjm, journalist AJ Walker and others.

Marketing expert Trey Pennigton was expected to deliver the opening keynote presentation at the conference, but he passed away on Sunday, September 4 — in his memory, all profits and donations now made at Linc Up Live will be collected and donated to The Samaritans. Donations can also be made online.

Throughout the day attendees will have a full programme of keynote presentations, networking opportunities and breakout sessions to attend and engage with.

Linc Up Live founder and digital marketing professional Celia Lacy said:

“The quality of speakers appearing at the event rivals other conferences hosted in much bigger cities such as London and Birmingham.

“They are some of the most influential people in the digital industry and will be passing some incredible insight and experience to the delegates.”

Glenn Le Santo, hardened digital and live event reporter and founder of LincUpLive, added:

“Don’t think of it as a local networking event, think of it as a major international conference with exciting and cutting edge content.

He added that the event “will help establish Lincolnshire as a key destination for both business and pleasure.”

More information about the event can be found on the conference official website.
