Digital DNA has started to use their own app in order to be that little bit more eco friendly, run in line with our theme of Digital and we encourage our delegates to do the same.

On top of this we aim to have digital screens along with large format maps/schedules at key points of the venue to ensure that you don’t miss out! Be be advised that any printed copies will be subject to change.
