As part of this year’s Digital City Festival, a number of unmissable partner events have been announced including a variety of flagship events from MediaCity’s innovation hub HOST.
During the week-long festival, which runs from March 7th to March 11th, a range of partner events, from celebrating equality to esports, will take place across Greater Manchester to unite the digital sector.
Salford’s innovation hub HOST, Home of Skills & Technology, is one of the lead sponsors at the five-day event.
As one of the first partner events taking place at the festival, HOST will bring the first National Cyber Summit to the festival which will take place at HOST Social in MediaCity on March 7th.
The National Cyber Summit will celebrate Greater Manchester’s cyber security capabilities through a series of inspiring panel discussions, Q&As, expos and networking.
Mo Isap, CEO of In4 Group, Operator of HOST, said: “We are excited to host the first National Cyber Summit in the North West, working with key partners such as the Greater Manchester Cyber Security Advisory Group, to celebrate the fantastic cyber security capabilities we have in Greater Manchester and the inclusive economic growth that this brings to the digital-city region.
“With the government’s investment in Lancashire as its base for the National Cyber Force, it’s more important than ever that we see cyber as a key enabler to drive prosperity and accessibility in the region. Collaboration is imperative to establishing further innovation and high-quality skills and jobs in the emerging North West cyber corridor.”
