DotYork 2018 - Save the Date

Friday 9th May 2025 by Rick Chadwick in 2018

DotYork is returning for 2018 on Thursday 4th October where we’ll be turning the spotlight on the work we all do and its impact on the world - and people - around us.

You’ll hear from, and take part in, discussions with 16 speakers; all ready to share their experience of working in digital/creative industries. Our talks will become talking points set to intrigue, inspire and challenge the way you think about your work.

If you’ve ever been to DotYork before you’ll be reassured to know that the good bits are all staying - unconventional formats, unheard voices, a cracking compere, safe space conversations, a beautiful host city - but you can expect some surprises along the way.

We’re genuinely excited about this year’s DotYork and have much more to share with you over the next few months—we think you’re going to love it! Read on for information about tickets, speakers, sponsors and how you can get involved.

We’ll be in touch soon…


Early bird tickets are available NOW, for just £75!

There are only a limited number of them available and they won’t be there forever, so if you know you want to come to DotYork this year, register now.

Get Tickets

If you’d rather wait until we’ve told you a bit more about the event and our amazing line-up of speakers, that’s ok too. Expect that information in June, but expect to pay full price ;)

Community Tickets

This year, we’re offering a limited number of free tickets to anyone that wants to attend but couldn’t otherwise do so. To find out more and apply, read about community tickets.


We’ve already hand-picked some of the best and most interesting speakers around and can’t wait to share them with you.

But it’s not too late for you to get involved, our call for speakers is open now until the end of the month.

We’re on the lookout for creative thinkers and doers who can share stories to inspire and challenge our audience on topics such as privacy, consent and identity; money, risk and trust; and the impact of your work on you and the world around us.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, whether you’ve spoken at events before, or this is brand-new to you - we’ll do what we can to support you through the process and promise a safe place to share your insight, opinions and experience.

If this sounds like you or somebody in your network, you can read more and apply here.


Sponsorship is really important to us. Without the support of our generous sponsors we honestly couldn’t keep putting on DotYork.

We operate as a limited company but we’re community-spirited. We want DotYork to be affordable and accessible to anyone that wants to attend. Our only financial goal is to break even. Only with sponsors does that become close to being possible.

On top of that, sponsorship means we can do things that are important to us, and offer you added value. Like providing community tickets to anyone that wants one; paying our speakers fairly, running extra events during the year and throwing in some extras on the day itself.

If you’d like to chat about sponsoring DotYork please email Rick. We have a few off-the-peg options but are always willing to put together bespoke packages to meet your needs. It doesn’t have to be that expensive either.
