Tech Show North 2019
With tech investment growing faster in the North than anywhere else in Europe, the region is indisputedly now a big player on the global tech scene.
A vibrant network of start-ups, scale-ups and established players, fuelled by an enviable talent pool drawn from a number of world-class universities, has made the North a hugely attractive place to be for companies involved in everything from software development, IoT, cybersecurity, the cloud and data analytics to media production, animation, gaming and VR/AR/360°.
All of which makes now a very good time to launch an event that brings this thriving sector together.
Taking place over two days on Wednesday May 8th and Thursday 9th May 2019 at Event City near Manchester, we expect the event to attract up to 3,000 visitors and over 120 exhibitors.
It will feature keynote speakers from globally significant tech brands and seminars and talks involving leading industry professionals from the tech world.
Two major global firms have already committed to supporting the event. Global professional services firm PwC will sponsor the AI, Machine Learning & Business Insights Theatre, while technology advisory and investment firm GP Bullhound will sponsor the High Growth Scale-up Theatre.
Lawrence Jones MBE, CEO of cloud hosting brand UKFast, the event's lead sponsor, said: “I have long said that we’re in the midst of an industrious revolution, so to hear Tech Show North describe how the North of England is driving the fourth industrial revolution is music to my ears!
“I am proud to back an event that showcases the extraordinary technical talent of Manchester and beyond. Tech Show North is set to be one of the biggest exhibits centred around technology within the enterprise so it’s a perfect fit for UKFast. We’re excited to be a part of the show and meet more of our region’s extraordinary digital business leaders.”
