An event for digital animals since 2009

From the twitters:

What is Meetdraw?


Our Manifesto

Meetdraw is a meeting of digital animals to talk about and share collective passions. For everyone, no matter what they do or what stage they are in their career. It’s for us by us. At times aided by beer, we shall fuel creativity, ideas and inspiration in a relaxed informal and fun environment.

What do we do?

We support the local (Dorset) creative economy and provide an independent, neutral and open platform for communication and development.


  • host informal events open to everyone interested in ‘digital’
  • provide periodic thought leadership
  • help to promote other relevant events along the south coast
  • promote and connect digital talent

But we are not…

  • a platform for recruiters
  • formal business support
  • politically led or agency biased
  • financially motivated


To help create a sustainable, industry leading hub of exceptional talent in Dorset and promote our strengths externally.

Who are we?
