“With plans now underway to open a new Digital People office in Manchester in 2017, we are looking forward to building long-lasting relationships with, and serving more customers in the North, and to helping them secure the best digital talent the region has to offer.”

The event will feature leading exponents of eCommerce with businesses specialising in the full range of available services and solutions, including platforms, payments, analytics, security, marketing, hosting, backbone, logistics, mobile, hardware and innovation.

There will also be a huge range of industry presentations and specialist businesses talks, conference sessions and seminars.

It will be an unmissable event for all those with a connection to the eCommerce sector, from CEOs, CMOs and MDs to heads of digital, developers and technical managers.
