On the 15th and 16th September 2017 the first-ever Comms Unplugged festival took place… This event was billed as a digital industry event unlike no other. It was a retreat aimed at connecting and developing in a outdoors setting. The reason this festival was so unique is that it aimed to get people involved with each other away from the distractions of phones, emails, WiFi and tech. It was a tech-free, wifi-free zone! At the festival were a number of such as inspirational speakers, motivational workshops and wellbeing activities. The organisers wanted to create an special experience in order to get people talking about it afterwards, rather than just another event.
