Digital Mission NYC events line-up revealed

Big Apple here we come! The Web 2.0 Expo in New York is less than four days away and the Digital Mission calendar is now looking good and poised to host some serious action...

Digital Mission to NYC 2008 Want the lowdown? We're taking 21 of the UK's brightest and most innovative digital start-ups on a trade mission (in association with UK Trade & Investment, a government agency) to New York to make contacts, drum-up investor support and grow their business base in the US.

The trip coincides with the renowned Web 2.0 Expo in New York and we've put together an exciting itinerary of events, meet-ups and sessions both within and around the Expo.

Want to meet the Brits? Anyone who wants to get a flavour of some of the best new talent emerging from the UK's dynamic and well-established digital industries can come along. You could be a potential investor or client, a blogger or journalist, a conference delegate...

In return, you'll get a chance to mingle with the lively Brit contingent and get some insight to the web and mobile-focused enterprises cutting a swathe through the UK Web 2.0 scene.

The events are all free apart from the Web2Open 'Separated @ Birth' and 'Birds Of Feather' sessions which you can get access to by booking for a Web 2.0 Expo-only pass ($100).

Have a look through them, book for any you fancy, and hopefully we'll see you there!
