Latest partners to join Digital City Expo line-up announced


Digital City Festival is only two weeks away – and we’re pleased to reveal more sponsors, exhibitors and supporters taking part in the week’s cornerstone event, Digital City Expo.

Taking place on March 11th and 12th at Manchester Central, Digital City Expo is set to unite Marketing Show North, eCommerce Show North, Tech Show North and the new Media Zone, all under the convention centre’s roof.

Registration for Digital City Expo, which is open now, is free and provides access to all four sections of the exhibition, as well as to the wide range of talks across its eight stages. Access to all keynote sessions is included in a free delegate ticket, but there is also the opportunity to purchase Priority Passes to get guaranteed entry to the Keynote Theatre if oversubscribed, and a queue jump option.


We’ve already announced a wide range of exhibitors and sponsors supporting the expo, and the wider festival (9th – 13th of March), including Capita Consulting, the Co-operative Bank, BJSS, Silverchip, dotdigital, MiQ, Dept, Hootsuite and many more.
