Twenty of the region's creative and digital businesses attended the first full Digital Union Advisory Board meeting in Newcastle last week.

Having recently acquired the North East's Creative & Digital networking outlet Digital Union, business support organisation Generator brought together some of the region's digital players in a bid to drive the Union forward.

Companies including digital strategists Orange Bus and global digital art firm Atomhawk were in attendance, and Generator said the evening had paved the way to a bright future for the region's growing digital and creative economy.

Reflecting on the event, named Digital Union ReBoot, Generator CEO Jim Mawdsley said: 'Last night's Digital Union ReBoot showed first class commitment from the companies we have initially spoken to. We now have a much better understanding of how we will take Digital Union forward and we're excited about the prospect of many more joining. We want Digital Union to represent the region's Creative and Digital sector and it is vital that we have developed an offer that represents and supports business needs.'
