Manchester Tech Festival 2022

17 October @ 9:00 am - 21 October @ 8:00 pm


The first ever Manchester Tech Festival is coming, between 17th and 21st October 2022 – it’s #OurTimeToReign.

The festival will unite thousands of tech delegates, including software engineers, start-ups and scale-ups, investors, product owners, practitioners and more, to help people and organisations learn, create, thrive, and ultimately shape Greater Manchester’s tech scene.

Its five consecutive days will comprise more than 40 free events like meetups, popups, lectures, hackathons, discussions, debates and socials, together with a two-day speaker-led exhibition and conference at the city’s iconic Victoria Baths.

The festival will examine how Greater Manchester’s tech community can achieve their goals through shared experiences, highlighting successes and failures. Attendees will witness first-hand what it’s like to be part of the UK’s most vibrant regional hotspots for tech, whilst hearing from and networking amongst some of the combined authority’s biggest and most innovative names within the sector.

Greater Manchester has a thriving ecosystem, a history of innovation and a deep talent pool, making it the perfect place for innovative digital and technology companies looking to drive the industry’s future.
