The birth of Digitees 

Last night, Mabo held the first ever Digitees – Middlesbrough’s quarterly digital marketing meet up.  

The event took place in Basecamp Boro and saw Publicity Seekers’ Sam Lee (that’s our Sam!) give a great introduction to “What the f*ck is PR?” to a variety of Teesside businesses. 

All the hard work from Scarlett Reeves and James Lees came together to celebrate the booming digital sector in Teesside and it was great to see so many of you there. 

Bring on the next event when Animmersion’s Dom Lusardi will be the keynote speaker. 


Andy Preston is inviting businesses back to the Riverside for an update on Boho X this month.

The Middlesbrough mayor is expected to give an overview of the updated plans and announce that planning permission has been sought for the building. 

The plans are now becoming a reality, and this is a chance to see the up-to-date designs and visuals for the building and to find out all the latest news. 

Middlesbrough is establishing itself as a trail-blazing digital hub for the UK with this project. The building will be the largest building for 35 miles and includes a helipad and an indoor and outdoor amphitheatre for key speakers in the area. 

If you want to attend, please RSVP to by Monday 17 February.
