The Digital Legacy Conference

The Digital Legacy Conference 2024 


The Digital Legacy Conference is an annual conference that explores and celebrates the positive impact technology can have within the end of life and bereavement. 

Digital Legacy Conference 2024 (#DLC2024) attendees will learn about emerging best practices in areas relating to digital assets planning and digital legacy safeguarding. It is free to attend for all PHPCI badgeholders and a number of free tickets will also be available for those not attending PHPCI.

The Digital Legacy Conference is a not for profit event. Its aim is to empower professionals with this increasingly important area. Through awareness, discussions and the sharing of knowledge, professionals are able to adapt their own practice and policies in order to better serve patients, families and different communities.

Why this conference is important

Modern day technologies are changing the world. The ways in which we plan for death and remember our loved one’s are increasingly moving into the digital realm. Health, social care and palliative care professionals need to be able to adapt practice, communication, policies and procedures to better support our ever increasingly, digitally mature society.

The Digital Legacy Conference is for those involved in care planning, social care, healthcare, palliative, hospice and bereavement professionals. It is also relevant for policy makers, technologists and academics working within this sector.
