More Connected, More Data, More London

CDL 2018 was more – more of everything: more people, more topics, more speakers, more tracks, more knowledge sharing, more fun. CDL 2019 will be even more. This is why we are adding new dates and moving to a new venue.

Are you hands-on? Would you like to be? We are. And we felt it was about time we brought this aspect to CDL too. Adding workshops is something many people asked for, and we listened. October the 3rd will be our workshop day. Watch out for announcements, combo tickets and discounts!

Besides time, we also needed more space. This is why we decided to host this year’s event at the Hilton Doubletree, in the heart of London. This year CDL will start earlier, and last longer. The main event is on October the 4th, and October the 3rd is our workshop day. We can’t wait! Literally, we can’t wait.

Obviously organizing CDL takes time, and we know you also need time to plan your visit. October gives us all enough time to plan, but we want to stay connected in the meanwhile too. As you probably know, we often share our thoughts, news and things we find interesting via our blog and social media. We are also adding more ways and channels to connect: hello, podcasts and webinars. Hello, Instagram.

 

As you may know, we have a YouTube channel, and we thought we might as well use it for more than event videos. Our first webinar is in the works! Stay tuned as we announce date and topic soon, and look out for podcasts too. And, we thought we’d add Instagram to our social media channels while at it too. We can do visual too – check it out!
