Ed Vaizey & Digital Oxford
On Wednesday 28 January 2015, we opened our doors to Digital Oxford, a hub bringing together technologically creative minds. Throughout the evening, we had over 300 guests mingling, learning and most importantly, connecting. Ed Vaizey, MP for Didcot and Wantage, had an extra special message for our audience and Digital Oxford have kindly allowed us to share it with you.
As a city, Oxford has the global exposure, digital heritage, intellectual and cultural capital to attract the world’s brightest minds, connecting industries from healthcare and automotive to coding and creativity. In fact, this isn’t an ambition. It’s a reality. Oxford is already home to some of the world’s leading technology. We just need to let the world know about it. And that starts at home.
This is what Digital Oxford aims to do. Find out more here:
