South Council

Aligning BIMA’s national agenda and broad network with community leaders in key areas across the South from Brighton to Bournemouth.

About the council

Digital and tech excellence in the south spreads much further than the capital. The BIMA South Council champions the area’s capabilities and works to support and grow the local digital community.

We do that by fostering greater collaboration, partnership and inclusivity; by giving BIMA’s national agenda a local flavour, and by addressing the issues of specific importance to us.

Our community consists of the following areas:

Central: Bournemouth, Winchester, Portsmouth, Southampton and Berkshire

South East: Brighton, Sussex, Kent, Surrey
