North West Council

Helping the North lead the way in innovation and new technologies.

About the council

The North of England is one of the country’s growing & exciting areas for digital innovation and new technologies. The North Council helps BIMA members in the North West, North East, and Yorkshire lead the way by creating a community of agencies, brands, start-ups, game developers and more.

Together, we’re working to protect and develop the North’s digital ecosystem by growing BIMA’s local events programme. We’re partnering with local initiatives. And we’re helping BIMA members in the area be ‘good’ businesses and ambassadors for digital.
