Each month we produce events that bring together some of the brightest minds in digital to spark new ideas, create new connections and showcase the work of forward-thinking companies. Our experiences sit at the intersection of digital & culture.
We're commonly asked "What happens at a Digital DUMBO event?" Well, we like to mix things up. Usually its a combination of...
- Panel Discussions
- Solo Presentations
- Networking (...usually turns into a dance party)
- We once built an entire pop-up space
One things for sure, there's almost always a DJ & drinks!
