Today we can announce that, for the first time ever, our trio of industry expos will all take place together and across the same two days on March 11th and 12th 2020. 

The three expos, Marketing Show North, eCommerce Show North and Tech Show North, have previously taken place at Eventcity, near the Trafford Centre, at various points throughout the year. 

With attendance and demand for the expos growing year on year, Prolific North and Don’t Panic Events decided that it would make sense to move to a more central and accessible venue - Manchester Central. 

Martyn Collins, Expo Director, said: “It’s been fantastic watching our industry events grow year on year. We’re incredibly excited about bringing them together under one roof for 2020, allowing the hundreds of exhibitors, speakers and thousands of attendees from these ever-growing sectors to come together.”

As ever, the expos will include insightful keynote talks from senior figures from across the Tech, Marketing and eCommerce scene. Previous speakers have come from the likes of Vimto, Channel 4, Deliveroo, Just Eat, Twitter, Quantcast, Adestra, Amazon and many more successful companies. 

Manchester Central is an award-winning venue in the heart of one of Europe's most vibrant cities. Its vaulted arches and station clock have made Manchester Central an iconic city feature for over 130 years.

The 1800 metre-squared exhibition hall, located within the historic architecture and state-of-the-art facilities, will provide the perfect venue for the three expos. 

The last expo put on by Prolific North and Don't Panic Events was Marketing Show North, which brought together over 3,700 delegates at Eventcity. There were over 100 exhibitors - including the BBC, CircleLoop, AdRoll, Emarsys, Maru/Blue, Neuro-Insight and UKFast - showcasing digital innovation, marketing platforms, marketing technologies, sales innovation, immersive technologies and more.

The next expo in the Prolific calendar will take place on May 8th and 9th, and includes both eCommerce Show North and Tech Show North

You can register here to attend both Tech Show North 2019 and eCommerce Show North 2019.
