Call for Shropshire companies to get involved in Britain’s best creative web event

Demand for tickets for this year’s Theory of (R)Evolution web conference to be held in Shrewsbury on 27th September is so high that organisers expect the event to sell out by the end of the month.

To meet the unprecedented demand for places following the sell-out conference last year, this year’s (R)Evolution event will take place at the Shrewsbury Conference Centre at RHS Shrewsbury.

Organised by Shropgeek, a community of digital creatives, the conference has rapidly become one of the most significant of its type in the UK with this year’s event attracting international thought leaders from the web industry. Shropshire will host some of the UK’s most celebrated web professionals for a day of industry-leading discussion and information sharing.

This year’s exceptional keynote speakers include the internationally renowned Canadian web architect Jonathan Snook, James Whittaker from the Twitter Corporation, Dafydd Vaughn from the government’s website UK.gov and Elliot Jay Stocks, Creative Director of Adobe Typekit.

Other top speakers include Robert Mills from Designing the Invisible, Chris Thorpe from Jaggeree, the specialist web and mobile apps designer Laura Kalbag and Joel Hughes from Port 80 Conference.

Shrewsbury-based web developers, Kirsty Burgoine and Pete White, along with leading London-based web writer and technology evangelist, Zach Beauvais, are the driving force behind the (R)Evolution event.

“Interest in The Theory of (R)Evolution 2013 has rocketed this year.” said Kirsty. “Anyone who is anyone in the digital industry in Britain will be there. It’s awesome to think that in just three years we have created arguably the most compelling ‘must attend’ web event in the country right here in Shropshire.

“Any business delivering digital and web-related services within the Shropshire business community will have unprecedented access to some of the most dynamic web professionals in the UK and beyond.

“We’ve already secured high level support from organisations from beyond our borders but I want to see Shropshire companies getting involved. We have a range of conference sponsorships available as well as pre and post conference social events, with a perfect mix of developers, creatives and business people attending.

The Theory of (R)Evolution 2013 conference will help Shropshire businesses better understand the impact of the web, digital technologies and the crucial strategic role they play in business-winning,” added Kirsty.

High profile sponsors providing integral support to this showcase event include Greenfield IT Recruitment, Heart Internet and Zengenti.
