A fast-growing Leeds-based digital design house is hosting its fourth Digital Show & Tell event to showcase the latest tech the region has to offer.

The event, which is hosted by LightStart, will focus on widgets, both physical and digital, and will feature talks from key innovators in the tech scene.

Taking place on Tuesday 18th September at Sedulo’s Leeds city centre office space from 6-8pm, the Digital Show & Tell is in partnership with TESLA, keen champions of digital innovation. TESLA product specialist, Tris Cox, will be speaking at the event and will also be bringing along a couple of cars for attendees to get a feel for.

Commenting on the event, Dan Akers, co-founder at LightStart said:

“We’re thrilled to have partnered with TESLA on this event, it’s awesome to see a large, multinational firm supporting Yorkshire tech companies”
