HUNTINGDONSHIRE businesses are being invited to sign up to a free interactive discussion on the value of social networks in Cambridge next month.

The event, on the theme of "energising your business through social networks", takes place on July 10, and will include a panel made up of the world-renowned technology influencers and bloggers, the "Travelling Geeks".

East of England International, the international business support organisation for the region, is hosting the visit to Cambridge as part of the Travelling Geeks' tour of the UK. The aim of their visit is to learn about new and innovative technologies and initiatives being developed in the region, and report their findings through blogs, video, podcasts and social networks, EEI said.

The panel discussion will take place in the Pitt building, Trumpington Street, Cambridge at 11am on the day, and will be led by digital marketing agency Omobono, with the Travelling Geek panel made up of Tom Foremski, Susan Bratton, JD Lasica, Robert Scoble and Renee Blodgett. The discussion will be interactive, with the Geeks responding to questions from the audience.

The interactive debate will be followed by a show-and-tell event at which regionally-based companies with innovative new products will have the chance to talk about their business, together with an opportunity for everyone to network and meet the Travelling Geeks.
