Amex supports Brighton Digital Festival

American Express, Brighton’s largest private-sector employer, has partnered with Brighton Digital Festival as Premier Sponsor for 2014.

The Festival will run from 1 to 28 September 2014 and is the UK’s largest festival of digital art and culture. It is a grassroots led festival guided by Brighton Digital Festival Consortium, a volunteer steering group of Brighton based digital businesses and culture organisations.

Last year the Festival consisted of a rich and diverse programme of 175 events and reached an audience of over 41,000.  
The continued support from American Express will help Europe's fastest growing digital culture festival celebrate the best in digital creativity and innovation.

Jesse Black Mooney, Brighton Digital Festival manager, said: “It’s great that American Express has chosen to support Brighton Digital Festival for the second year. Their contribution will allow the festival to reach new audiences and get more people involved in celebrating digital culture across Brighton and Hove. The creativity and innovation that takes place in the city is truly inspiring and we're thrilled that American Express continues to champion the growth of the festival and its community of amazing event organisers".

Katrina Roberts, Vice President, American Express Technology said:  “As one of the largest local IT employers, we are excited to be supporting the UK’s biggest digital festival. At American Express we
aim to be at the forefront of technological advancements to ensure we have the capabilities in place to meet the evolving needs of our customers. The Brighton Digital Festival provides an opportunity to deepen our links with a rapidly growing technology community and showcase the best the region has to offer in creativity, innovation and skill. More widely, it will help reinforce the city’s status as a growing technology hub and encourage new digital and creative talent to the area". 

Brighton Digital Festival is supported by Arts Council England and Brighton & Hove City Council.  Event organisers can apply to take part in the month-long celebration of digital culture on the Festival website:
Full information on events, conferences and exhibitions taking part in the Festival will be available on the website in August.
