Advisory Committees

Getting all the input we need!

This year, in addition to our three existing advisory committees – programming, technological and international – a fourth was added along the way – reinvention – to offer you the best possible experience on a new digital platform that reflects HUB’s identity. These committees exist thanks to the implication of close to 40 influential members in the world of digital creativity, locally and internationally. It is an honour to introduce them to you and, at the same time, we thank them for their heartfelt involvement.
