In 2018, 123 Internet Group hosted the first MK Digital Summit. The event was held at the prestigious Chicheley Hall and featured a host of key note speakers from a wide range of industries, including Barclays, Integral Powertrain, and SproutSocial.

Following the success and attendance for last year's event, 123 Internet Group are proud to announce that the MK Digital Summit is back for 2019.
