Today we can announce the first four Event Partners for the upcoming Digital City Expo, where professionals from a range of sectors will converge en masse to celebrate talent and innovation. 

We're delighted to announce that leading companies Adyen, Pimento, Vaimo and Sync are the first confirmed Event Partners for the expo, taking place on March 11th and 12th. 

Martyn Collins, Digital City Festival Director, said: "It's brilliant to have these Event Partners on board with the festival, all of whom are market leaders in their respective field. By partnering up with the shows inside Digital City Expo, these companies have closely aligned themselves with Manchester's global ambition to be a leading digital city."

For this year's expo, organisers are bringing together industry favourites Marketing Show North, eCommerce Show North and Tech Show North, along with a brand new Media Zone, all under one roof, enabling delegates to connect with a vast spectrum of specialists. 

Each of the shows will have up to five Event Partners, who will benefit from additional promotional opportunities as part of the expo. This includes PR and social media support and prominent signage within the expo hall.

Besides being an Event Partner for the eCommerce show, the company will also have an exhibitor stand, a speaker session, and sponsor an eCommerce session in the Keynote Theatre. 

Agency network Pimento is the first Event Partner announced for Marketing Show North, a show that has built up a serious reputation for bringing together the marketing sector over the last five years. Now with around 200 independent agencies and consultants, Pimento offers scale, breadth of expertise and idea creation in order to deliver marketing services for the new digital economy. Pimento will also be speaking at the Marketing Masterclass Theatre.

Besides exhibiting across the two days, Sync is also an Event Partner of Tech Show North - a section of the expo dedicated to innovative tech entrepreneurs and digital solutions. 

Another eCommerce Show North Event Partner that we can announce is Vaimo, who will also be sponsoring the eCommerce Masterclass Theatre. After starting in 2008, Vaimo has established itself as a full-service omnichannel agency building digital experiences for clients across the globe.
