LCR Activate is a programme led by Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) in partnership with the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) and the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LCR LEP). It provides dedicated technical and business support for SME’s in the region.
They came to us to run the Digital Summit, an annual conference and exhibition. We managed the project from conception to delivery. We worked closely with the client to develop an agenda that included a mix of informative industry speakers from the likes of Priya Lakhani, CEO of Century Tech, Dan Winn, Head of IOT in the UK at Vodafone and Vanessa Bakewell, Entertainment Vertical Lead at Facebook. We also had panel sessions providing practical advice from local business support providers, pitches from businesses who have received support from LCR Activate and networking opportunities. In addition, there was a business support exhibitor area and a ‘show and tell’ made up of 10 SMEs who are incorporating emerging technology in innovative and disruptive ways. The event attracted almost 250 delegates and received positive feedback from both attendees and the client.

“We made the right decision choosing You & Us to manage the LCR Activate Digital Summit 2018. This was a prestigious event and needed strong project co-ordination. You & Us helped at every step of the way, were on the end of the phone each time we needed them and their team couldn’t do enough for us on the day of the event. All in all the event went smoothly and was a huge success.”
