Leading technology advisory and investment firm GP Bullhound is the latest big name to commit to supporting Tech Show North, which is shaping up to be the largest commercial and B2B tech event staged outside London.

The global company, which has an office in Manchester, is to sponsor the High Growth Scale-up Theatre which will provide a rich source of information, seminars and speakers about start-ups that have used investment to grow their business.

Nick Horrocks, Director, GP Bullhound, said: "We are delighted to be part of the event and take this opportunity to showcase the exceptional businesses and talent which exist in the region. Within the last year no fewer than three local companies have achieved Unicorn status – we want to celebrate and build upon this success.

"GP Bullhound and its partners will bring together some challenging and thought provoking topics relevant to tech companies large and small. As hosts of the Northern Tech Awards, which raises the profile of many of the most exciting businesses in the North, we hope many of these companies will join us over the two days. This offers the investment community a chance to meet them and help put them on the path to being another Northern success story.”

GP Bullhound's involvement follows news that global professional services firm PwC is to sponsor the AI, Machine Learning & Business Insights Theatre.

Sponsored by UKFast and delivered by Prolific North and Don't Panic, Tech Show North is expected to attract up to 3,000 visitors and over 120 exhibitors.

Lawrence Jones MBE, CEO of cloud hosting brand UKFast, the event's lead sponsor, said: “I have long said that we’re in the midst of an industrious revolution, so to hear Tech Show North describe how the North of England is driving the fourth industrial revolution is music to my ears!

“I am proud to back an event that showcases the extraordinary technical talent of Manchester and beyond. Tech Show North is set to be one of the biggest exhibits centred around technology within the enterprise so it’s a perfect fit for UKFast. We’re excited to be a part of the show and meet more of our region’s extraordinary digital business leaders.”

Tech Show North will sit alongside our two hugely successful and established events, Marketing Show North (formerly Prolific North Live) and eCommerce Show North, both of which are returning.

Whether you are at Business 1.0 in need of insight and inspiration, or you are a future-thinker eager to share your ideas and boost your presence as a leader in tech, Tech Show North will be simply unmissable.

There are a number of different ways in which businesses and organisations can get involved in Tech Show North, from booking a stand to a wide range of sponsorship opportunities. We are also eager to hear from experiential companies who can help stimulate conversation and sprinkle their own unique ‘fairy dust’.
