Announcing the shortlist for the Digital Technology Leaders Awards 2024

These are the entries the judges deemed worthy of being finalists for the Digital Technology Leaders Awards 2024.

We are pleased to reveal the shortlist for this year's Digital Technology Leaders Awards.

Unlike some events, the Digital Technology Leaders Awards do not honour products. Instead, these awards recognise the outstanding achievements of people, projects and companies in the digital field.

Each of the shortlisted candidates have shown exceptional commitment to excellence, and have emerged as leaders in their fields.

We will be honouring the finalists' success at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 3rd July, at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square. Attendees will enjoy an evening of celebration and networking, with a drinks reception, live entertainment and of course the awards ceremony itself.
