Digital Shoreditch is a not-for-profit community that runs the annual Digital Shoreditch Festival, a two-week celebration in East London. The Festival, which kicks off on Monday, May 11 and runs through Sunday, May 24, draws more than 15,000 people from around the world to participate in tech and creative-focused talks, keynotes, workshops, and more.
As the event nears, traffic to the Digital Shoreditch website spikes—it sees a 240 percent increase in volume of visitors during the two-week Festival period. The site needs to be able to withstand that growth and scale, while also remaining secure and delivering 100 percent uptime.
To support its growth, Digital Shoreditch relies on the managed WordPress hosting platform from WP Engine.
