On the 9th and 10th of March, Manchester’s tech and digital community descended upon Manchester central convention complex for the Digital City Festival Expo - full of insightful talks, engaging displays, and plenty of networking! Find out our key highlights of the event below!

Excellent Exhibitors

Our fellow exhibitors were brilliant, and in true expo fashion we came away with tote bags bursting with freebies! Big shout out to Klayvio for the Chilly’s water bottles, Ayko for the reusable coffee cups, ShipSation for the socks and notebooks, and NorthCoders for having a great chat with us about what makes a leading digital city!

There were also some great interactive stands – Wunderkind let your pour a pint with your mind! (Our Managing Partner Brian got 6th on the leaderboard!), Spotler had a cool wind tunnel game where you could grab vouchers for prizes, and Don’t Panic Events had a cool angel wing photo op – which our consultants Vic and Sara took full advantage of!)

Noteworthy Networking

Finally, there were some great opportunities to network with other exhibitors over (free!) drinks and listen to some great music from a live DJ! The events ceremony at the Etihad stadium rounded of the expo with a night of glamour – celebrating tech that improves our lives.

A big thanks to Prolific North who facilitated the expo, Fast and Klaviyo for sponsoring, and Martyn Collins (Festival Director) for organising such a great event!
