Full agenda revealed for Digital City Festival 2024

DCF 2024

As preparations ramp up for the return of Digital City Festival, we can now reveal the full agenda for what you can expect this year. 

Now in its fifth year, Digital City Festival is the annual event series that brings together the digital and tech communities from across the North and beyond and will return to Manchester from 15 – 19 April.

From the latest emerging trends in tech and digital, to supporting the talent of the region and tackling sustainability, it’s set to be a jam-packed week of events to look forward to.

There will be a number of key anchor events hosted by Prolific North across the week alongside a number of fringe events. Please note each event is ticketed individually. 

The first event of Digital City Festival 2024 will unite leaders, businesses and figures from both the public and private sectors for a Digital Leaders Summit & Reception on Monday 15 April. This invite-only event will address the challenges and opportunities for digital growth in the North.

On Tuesday 16 April, there will be a must-attend Made in the North Exhibition hosted at MediaCity where we will bring together the North’s media and broadcast sectors to showcase some of the wonderful talent the North has to offer.

Later in the day, it will be followed by a Made in the North Summit which will see leaders in the media and broadcasting sectors come together for a thought-provoking discussion on how the industry can work together and consolidate its existing success.  

E-commerce Show North will kick off on Wednesday 17 April, with two dedicated content streams and over 20 expert speakers. This event is your one-stop shop to stay on top of the challenges and trends affecting the e-commerce sector in 2024.

A special event on How can Northern Agencies Embrace AI? will be hosted on Thursday 18 April, where we will not only be addressing both the opportunities and challenges AI poses to the region’s digital and integrated agencies, but also unite these agencies to address how to keep up and grow with AI’s rapid advancements. We will also be revealing Prolific North’s new Top 50 Digital Agencies ranking for 2024 during the event – it’s not one to miss.

With lots happening across Digital City Festival week, make sure to check out the full agenda here.
