The final Digital Destinations event took place on Tuesday 22nd October at the East Cliff Court Hotel in Bournemouth where Dr Alford, the project lead, fed back the results and insights from the project as well as looking to the future and how the collaboration could be extended. If you weren’t able to make it to the event, you can view Dr Alford’s slides at http://www.slideshare.net/DigitalHub/digital-destinations-key-results-and-next-steps. The businesses also ‘graduated’ and received their certificates for their commitment to the project over a 12-month period, which is testimony to their support but also to the importance they attach to Digital Marketing.
The evening concluded with great Q&A with overwhelming enthusiasm for not letting the Digital Marketing journey end at this point but for finding opportunities to extent the work and the great networking that the project established. In that spirit, a number of businesses are attending the Social Media and Reputation Management event at Bournemouth University on the 8th November http://www.esrc.ac.uk/news-and-events/events/festival/
