It will be the second year running that Colehouse has teamed up with Tech Talent (run by Sunderland Software City) supporting its drive to help connect employers and education with new talent across the region. 

“We’re delighted to have Colehouse back on board for Tech Talent 2019” said Laura Richards, Head of Comms at Sunderland Software City. “Last year they showed us the value in building long term community around our event.” 

Furthermore, for the 3rd consecutive year, Colehouse has been delivering the digital marketing backbone to the Thinking Digital Conference which is celebrating its 12th anniversary. 

“Working with Colehouse over the last few years has let us concentrate on delivering a great event for those attending, we’ve seen a huge impact from the work the team has done across social media and the website,” said Emma Turnbull, Executive Producer of Thinking Digital.

Colehouse Communications has recently moved to a central Middlesbrough location after doubling the workforce in 2018. Colehouse has worked with brands across the UK since it’s birth in late 2014, recent successes include helping sell out the largest TEDx event in Europe as well as delivering a global advertising campaign for a Microsoft platinum partner. They pride themselves on collaborations in the North-East with the likes of Sunderland Software City, Digital Union, and Thinking Digital. 

The North East Digital Festival launches on 13th May and features events including Newcastle Startup Week, a CIPR North East Influencer Masterclass, and Startup SAFARI  as well as Tech Talent and Thinking Digital. 

Colehouse Managing Director Steven Cole said, “I’m proud that we’re representing Middlesbrough as part of the North East Digital Festival and hope more activities will spring up in the Teesside region in the coming years, it’s great to see better collaboration between what were previously stand-alone events.”
