This year’s Digital Shoreditch Festival, the UK's premier tech showcase, celebrated the outstanding creative, technical and entrepreneurial talent of East London, Tech City, and the UK. More than 14,500 entrepreneurs and technology lovers turned out for the 12-day event, nearly twice as many as last year. Among the big trends this year were sessions on the quantified self, the rise of wearable technology like Fitbit and Google Glass, why owning stuff doesn't matter (hello, Spotify), and why mobile isn't the only solution – your brand should be wherever your customers are.

Say Media was also there to present three very popular sessions: Back to the Mobile Future, Stories to tell, brands to sell, and Mobile is the New Cigarette.

To capture the enthusiasm and zeitgeist of Digital Shoreditch, we also created this video of visitors to the Festival and asked them to tell us why they attended and what's hot in London's digital tech scene.

Check out the all the videos we filmed for Say Media's storytelling workshop and the photos on the Say Media Flickr stream. You can also follow @digishoreditch, #DS13, and @SayMediaUK for more great content and updates.
