Digital City Launch event taking place in central Manchester tomorrow


The Digital City Festival launch event, which kicks off an exciting five months running up to the arrival of the festival in March 2020, will take place at the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce tomorrow evening.

The launch event, starting at 6pm, provides an unmissable opportunity to hear from the Digital City Festival organisational team as well as our two guest speakers – Herb Kim, Founder and Curator of TEDxManchester, TEDxLiverpool, TEDxNewcastle, and more; and Matt Whalley, Head of Delivery at BJSS, now Lead Sponsor of Tech Show North at Digital City Expo.

Tomorrow night, our guests will enjoy a drinks reception before hearing from the speakers. Following this, there will be an opportunity to network and enjoy drinks and nibbles with those in attendance.


Regional business figures and influential professionals will come together at the Chamber of Commerce to support the introduction of the all-new Digital City Festival – a landmark event for Manchester, which promises to bring attendees from across the country to celebrate the digital economy.

They’ll be treated to a first look at the five-day programme of events, which arrives in Manchester on March 9th 2020.

Digital City Festival will bring together the entire digital sector over the course of five days, celebrating the thriving nature of the industry across all its specialisms. It will include Digital City Expo – bringing together Marketing Show North, eCommerce Show North and Tech Show North – as well as a dedicated awards ceremony, and a host of fringe events put on by partners around the city.

There’ll be no shortage of opportunities to collaborate, ideate and learn – with hands-on experiential activities and city-wide events tackling the big questions facing digital right now.


Make sure you register for free tickets to tomorrow’s event to get a better idea of what March’s event will look like – and network with peers from a range of industries. Meet our Digital City Festival Champions, city leaders and other digital professionals, and enjoy a relaxed evening celebrating the launch of Digital City Festival.
