Colony and Digital City Festival invite you to join us for a talk and panel discussion on AI and the future of digital marketing.

Ai is a term that has been bandied around for a few years now, however, since the launch of the likes of ChatGPT, Ai has evolved and is a hot topic amongst the digital community. It cannot be denied that the digital world as we know it, and the digital world of marketing is changing.

Are future communications all going to be created by Ai? Do marketers, web developers and designers have a future? Will Ai lure companies to save cash and move away from professional digital marketers and agencies? Or will digital industries evolve around technology to create new channels and new ways of working?

Will we ultimately benefit from Ai, or should we be scared of it?

To discuss these important questions we have assembled a panel of guest speakers from different sectors of the industry.


  • Chris Coulson, Marketing Director, Mediaworks
  • Rob Illidge, Founder, & Social Republic
  • Dr Matt Shardlow, Lecturer, Greater Manchester AI Foundry & MMU
  • Chloe Daly, UI Designer, Absurd

The event will be hosted by Colony CoWork at their One Silk St coworking space in Ancoats. There will be drinks and food provided along with space for networking throughout the evening.

This event is free to attend and space is limited so RSVP today to secure your ticket.
