The worldwide audience for Birmingham’s Hello Digital week has affirmed it as a huge success and a reinforcement of Birmingham’s place on the world digital stage.
In a week which saw Birmingham recognised as one of the world’s ‘Smart21’ intelligent cities by the internationally-renowned Intelligent Community Forum (ICF), Hello Digital gave visitors from the public and private sector a small taste of what is possible with the smart application of digital technologies.
