In January 2017, Manchester was named for the first time among Europe’s top 20 cities for digital innovation.

The city that has made its name through constant reinvention and adaptation is right now home to one of the UK’s most interesting digital economies. There are some stellar examples of thriving businesses in the local tech scene.

That’s why OBI Property is hosting an exclusive event for our clients and friends to celebrate the success of the city’s digital sector and ask what needs to happen now to make the next step.

The event, to be held on 26th April at The Hive, will feature expert speakers from the digital and creative community, sharing their experiences and showing how businesses of varying sizes and styles are needed to keep this key sector growing.

Attendees will hear insights from:

– Mark Barlow, AppLearn

– Ryan Cheyne, Rentalcars.com

– Steve Pearce and Sam Coley, Tickx

– Maya Dibley, The Landing @MediaCityUK

– Sam Jones, Tunafish Media

We’re sure you’ll agree, these are fascinating businesses with stories to tell, thoughts to share and tips to offer for those starting out on their own business journeys.

They’ll offer valuable insight into their growth stories – the hurdles they’ve faced, how they’ve tackled challenges such as the war for talent, financing growth and finding the right space to develop.

On top of the chance to hear the thoughts of these key figures, there will be ample networking opportunities at the event, giving attendees the chance to meet with Manchester’s most dynamic businesses.

Places are filling up fast, but there’s still time to book. To secure your place at an event that promises a glimpse of the digital future being shaped in the city – agile, flexible and constantly moving forwards.
