Digital Portsmouth is 1 Year Old!
Come celebrate with us at our fifth event where we will explore
*The Art of Storytelling*
Digital Portsmouth is a quarterly event showcasing the creative, digital culture that is thriving on the Seacoast.
The evening will consist of a cocktail and appetizer hour, followed by a presentation, then an open discussion (and more cocktails). Agencies and individuals who have shown their excellence in the field will give a short presentation about what has them excited about a particular project, why they chose it, and what innovative techniques they used to accomplish it.
We hope you an make it!
