We can often be found speaking at industry and public events. We do so in order to highlight the importance preparing for a digital death, helping to ensure that our wishes are met and make life easier for those left behind


The Digital Legacy Conference


DeadSocial founded the annual Digital Legacy Conference in order for experts to share their knowledge with healthcare professionals, the general public and industry. The Digital Legacy Conference 2015 will take place at UCL Partners on the 23rd May. It is free to attend and will include a range of industry professionals and scholars.
