Celebrating digital projects within the South West, the South West Digital Awards bring together the very best of the region for one night only.

The South West Digital Awards

The South West is a region buzzing with innovation, startups and talent but is too often overlooked in favour of London and other large areas.  

From Bristol-based companies selling their products internationally to young developers working out of their bedroom in Cornwall, the awards will be a chance to highlight, reward and encourage digital innovation in the region. 

Unlike any awards before, the evening will be a massive celebration of the South West with interactive exhibits, a live panel and fantastic night of networking.

Something For Everyone.

We want to highlight what’s really going on, not only what’s being done by organisations that have budget to enter business awards, but by those that are bootstrapping their way to global success.

There’s lots to enjoy on the night, ranging from gourmet dinner to a live exhibition area.

All of which adds up to a fantastic night of networking and plenty of opportunities for brands and businesses to engage with a varied group of attendees.
