We recently revealed the guest speaker for the Tech Dinner on November 14th as Alexi Walsh from GBG Plc. The event, sponsored by HardSoft, will be a fantastic opportunity to engage with the tech community whilst dressing up for a delicious three-course evening meal at Manchester Hall.

The night will also be the first chance to see this year's Prolific North Top 50 Tech Companies, compiled by Mustard Research. There's not long left to get your ticket. Find out more here.

In association with YouGov and the7stars, we're holding a Nostalgia in Advertising event - where YouGov's most recent whitepaper on the subject will officially be launched. Come along to enjoy drinks and canapes, as well as an insightful panel discussion featuring brand leaders. Spaces are limited, so register your interest in attending the event right here.

We spoke to some of the panellists for the evening last week. Find out what they said here and have a peek at some of the key findings from the upcoming paper here.

  • Be part of the Manufacturing Roundtable

If you're a regional manufacturer interested in the prospect of utilising eCommerce, we're hosting a roundtable in association with Access and Acquia on the topic, held at Hotel Football near Old Trafford Stadium. The event will cover how to improve industry practices, choosing the right time to retail online, and overcoming obstacles including relationships with existing supply chains.

Taking place on November 20th, the event will run from 9:30am until midday, and complimentary breakfast will be provided. If you represent a manufacturer, please enter your details here. We will be announcing who will chair the roundtable this week.
