Over 90 companies have now signed up to ProlificNorthLive, smashing all targets set for the ground-breaking expo.

A host of new companies have begun the new year by booking some of the few remaining stands for the event, which is now just under three weeks away.

The companies include HUGE Media, dock10, Shrewdd Marketing, Juice Academy, Kestrel-Cam, Havas Village Manchester, Liverpool John Moores University, Marketing Minds and Cascade.

It’s now a certainty that the expo, which will take place at Emirates Old Trafford on February 2, will be the biggest ever media, marketing and creative industries event to be staged outside London.

Our four Event Partners are Smoking Gun PR, A&P, mclcreate and Steamhaus.

Alongside the expo there is a full day conference and dozens of workshops, tech and financing sessions, complemented by a full visual programme taking place in the 100-seat mobile cinema. Attendance at these keynotes and the rest of the expo is free and you can register here.

We have also introduced a dedicated Education Pavilion on the third floor of the Point at LCCC, with Liverpool JMU, MMU, the University of Salford and The Juice Academy signed up to exhibit.

And we are in discussions with several other HE bodies, training companies, people development organisations and companies seeking to supply education and engagement services to the owners of hundreds of creative companies who will be attending ProlificNorthLive. As far as we know, there is no other event in the North which will specifically address the employers of creative industries companies rather than the graduates themselves.

To find out how your business can get involved, please contact Dunstan Carter on 07940 423202 or by emailing
