Prolific North Live 2018: New keynote quarters and dedicated zones for VR, AR and AI


Today we are releasing more details about Prolific North Live, the leading media, marketing and creative industries expo outside of London, which will return for a third year on Wednesday February 28th and Thursday March 1st 2018.

Earlier this week we announced that the event will be returning to Event City in Trafford Park, Manchester, and we’re expecting a significant leap on last year’s 3,800 delegates.

Channel 4, Steamhaus and The Landing are all back on board as event partners, and we can also confirm that many of last year’s exhibitors have also rebooked.

For 2018, we will be streamlining the keynote theatre quarters, with dedicated areas this time for Innovation, Technology and future trends, Marketing and Content.

And there will be specific zones to explore advances at the bleeding edge of technology: VR, AR and AI.
