“The festival is at the heart of one of the fastest-growing technology hubs in Europe and with the highest creative cluster outside of London, the digital sector is continuing to thrive in the North West.

“It is only through collaboration and expanding our networks that we can drive the prosperity that technology and innovation can bring. It is vital that everyone has fair access to digital technology and the opportunities it can offer, only then can we deliver sustainable prosperity in the regions and unlock the vast potential of local talent.”

HOST, which is operated by IN4.0 Group, aims to create a diverse tech community and supports skills, growth and innovation across the sector.  

On the new India Pavilion, Mo Isap added: “It is an honour for us to host the India Pavilion in a prime spot at the Digital City Expo, where we will be showcasing five of India’s best, high growth, tech companies which we are supporting to scale through our contract with the Indian government. 

“We will also be welcoming other fast-growth businesses to join us in celebration of the digital-city region as an international hub for the creative, digital and tech industries. The vibrant innovation ecosystem we have in Greater Manchester continues to attract inward investment, which in turn generates new jobs and economic growth opportunities for the region.”
