eCommerce Show North 2017: Over 2,400 attend region's biggest ever eCommerce expo

Over 2,400 attendees, 106 exhibitors and sponsors, 71 speakers... the world of eCommerce was out in force for a superb eCommerce Show North this week.

An incredible array of companies, organisations and individuals with a connection to this rapidly growing sector were at Event City for the inaugural expo, the largest ever gathering of its type outside London.

Whether platforms, payments, analytics, security, marketing, hosting, logistics, mobile, psychology, hardware or innovation was your interest, this show had something for you.

And even if you were just there to network with clients, competitors and those with a like-minded interest in the future direction of the industry, eCSN was worth your while.

Despite the Manchester showers, over 1,400 attended day one, with another strong turnout (1,050) yesterday.

In between, the Northern eCommerce Awards at Manchester Cathedral provided an opportunity to take stock and celebrate those producing the most innovative and creative work out there.

And we can today reveal that the eCommerce Show North will be returning - bigger and better - for another two-day expo on October 10th and 11th 2018.

Event director Martyn Collins said: "I'd like to personally thank all the businesses who helped make this inaugural eCommerce event for the North happen.

"We're hugely grateful for their trust and commitment and are delighted that the number who have already booked for next year suggest that for most it was a very worthwhile investment.

"We're already putting plans in place for an even bigger and better show next year."
