Digital City Awards 2022 - Sheila Gordhan

Leaders from the digital ecosystem gathered last night at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester for the chance to celebrate all the winners at this year's Digital City Awards.

Sponsored by Klaviyo, the awards rounded off the second day of the successful Digital City Expo, all part of the wider Digital City Festival taking place across Manchester this week. Today (March 11th) marks the festival's final day of celebrations.

Local, national and international companies came together at the event to recognise the success of their peers and socialise in style at the high-profile venue.

    Compering last night's ceremony was Sheila Gordhan, the musician, public speaker and DistroTV presenter. She led the proceedings throughout the night, as the winners were revealed one by one.

    Congratulations to all the finalists and of course the winners, who went above and beyond to make a difference through digital innovation. Let's see who won.
