Following our last event in March we’re very excited to be hosting our first quarterly DigitalSurrey on June 13 at G Live in Guildford.
With sponsorship from WXG (Web Expo Guildford) / Kyan and theblueballroom, June’s DigitalSurrey will host a discussion on digital strategy: from services to social, led by a panel of experts.
