Camp Digital 2022 returns to Royal Exchange Theatre as hybrid event with line-up of prominent speakers

Camp Digital, the digital, design and UX conference, will be taking place at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre as a hybrid event after a two-year hiatus on 23rd June 2022.

The event has been running since 2002, bringing together experts from the creative and tech industries, with talks and workshops covering a range of topics from the future workplace to how the work of designers and technologists could be better for people and the planet.

The 2022 event will take place as a hybrid conference, with attendees having the option to attend the full day event in Manchester, or join a live stream broadcast of all the main stage talks throughout the day. This has the positive impact of opening the event up to wider audiences from further afield and promoting a more sustainable event as attendees can benefit without having to travel to Manchester to take part.

This year’s speakers include Gavin Strange, director and designer at the beloved creative studio Aardman Animations, responsible for Wallace and Gromit. He will discuss lessons and learnings from his time in the design and media industry.

Also confirmed as a speaker is Sharon O’Dea, award-winning digital strategist who has collaborated with organisations including Credit Suisse, Standard Chartered Bank, Barnardos, the Houses of Parliament and UK Research and Design Innovation. She will be talking about the growing complexity of the world of work and how digital workplace tools and practices can help and hinder.

Eight-time published author, Gerry McGovern, will be giving a talk on the environmental impact of digital, something that often goes unconsidered. His session will emphasise the importance of thinking about the long-term implications of digital and championing sustainable design focusing on maintenance and reuse.

Kylie Havelock, head of product at Citizens Advice, will discuss how the organisation is scaling a tailored advice service for its clients. Meanwhile, Rachel Coldicutt OBE, expert on the social impact of new and emerging technologies and former CEO of responsible technology think tank Doteveryone, will help her audience think about the impact of technology in our world.

They will also be joined by Sarah Mace from Leeds City of Culture; Jaskiran Kang, head of design for the Department for Education; Trilly Chatterjee from NHS Digital and lead content designer, Helen Lawson from Co-op Digital.

The agenda is organised around interactive seminars, in which attendees will hear about the speakers’ personal and professional journeys, learn about the ways in which different organisations tailor their design and development processes in user-centric ways, and get involved in interactive challenges.

The last Camp Digital in 2019 attracted over 500 people, who saw some of the digital industry’s leading lights share their passion and experience.

Shaun Gomm, organiser of Camp Digital and commercial director at Nexer Digital, said: “Camp Digital is something we’re incredibly proud of at Nexer Digital and an annual event that we greatly missed during the pandemic. Digital, design and user experience are fast-moving and highly impactful disciplines, touching so many different industries and changing the world around us.

“Getting some of the brightest and most innovative people in the field together for the day has proven incredibly productive over previous events. The decision to make the event hybrid this year means it will be accessible to a greater number of people, and we can’t wait for Camp Digital 2022 to be even bigger and better.”

Camp Digital will take place on 23rd June 2022 at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester and will also be accessible on livestream. Early bird conference tickets can be bought before 31st March for £100 + VAT and live stream tickets cost £30 + VAT.
