The Digital City Expo, the biggest digital show outside London this year, is OPEN!

The two-day exhibition, the centrepiece of the week-long Digital City Festival, is taking place at Manchester Central today and tomorrow, from 9am to 5pm.

A packed first morning would suggest that, for the time being at least, it is very much business as usual in Manchester for this brand new event.

You can still register for free here - and here's the full agenda for today and tomorrow.

Over 50 fringe events are also taking across the city - see what else is happening here.

The expo hall is already bustling with over 100 exhibiting companies, and the stages are set with speakers already discussing the latest innovations in the digital space. 

The Keynote Theatre will be the biggest stage for speakers, but there will also be speakers on the stages throughout the Tech Zone, Marketing Zone, eCommerce Zone, and Media Zone.

To find out who will be speaking at the Keynote Theatre across the two days, click here.

Whilst there will be brochures scattered around Manchester Central that provide the timings for talks and other information, you can also download the official Digital City Festival app so you have a handy interactive guide in your pocket. Follow this link to get the app.
