The doors are open once again at Digital City Expo, and after a stormy night the sun is shining once again for the inaugural event.

Yesterday, thousands of people from across Digital came along to Manchester Central in the heart of th city to meet and collaborate, not only meeting influential exhibitors from digital marketing, eCommerce, tech and more - but hearing from a wide range of thought leaders too.

A number of stages were full to bursting with eager attendees - with people often spilling into the venue's aisles to hear from names including Hootsuite's Hope Kerby and Accord's Jon Bezalel.

Digital City Expo Day One wrapped up with a popular exhibitor drinks at the venue's central bar, before the official afterparty at Manchester's Viadux, hosted by Dept.

And Day Two is underway, with doors open for any on-the-door visitor interested in meeting figures from the digital scene all in one place. You can also continue to register right here.
