BINARY KEYNOTES, BALTIC TRIANGLE

Last year the Binary Keynotes welcomed an audience of startups, established businesses, from digital & creative industries from sectors including IT, ICT, digital, web, digital agencies, publishing, broadcasting and media, students, and more to listen to a host of inspiring speakers. This year we will continue to create an environment where making new contacts and building relationships is as effortless as possible.

Binary Keynotes will focus on themes from the worlds of technology, web, digital media and mobile. However, we deliberately seek ideas from the worlds of science, creativity, innovation, the arts, music and media. Our topics are diverse and relevant to a vast range of people and businesses. Last year's festival featured the inspirational writer and poet Lemn Sissay MBE - Chancellor of The University of Manchester, Pam Warhurst - founder and inspiration behind Incredible Edible and Steve Bartlett - social influencer and CEO of Social Chain.
