20 thought leaders,
2 days, 1 beach

Silicon Beach 2015 brings together the UK’s leading strategic thinkers, digital innovators and people who look at brands. They'll showcase their challenges and the challenges of the 21st century from a slightly different perspective.



Each year the event draws together an enviable programme of thinkers, creators and doers, from a wide variety of disciplines. They all have a common purpose of sharing their expertise and the latest innovative thinking that’s driving the rapid growth of not only the UK’s, but arguably the world’s, creative economy.
