Manchester Tech Festival is back and bigger than ever!

This October, over 150 speakers from some of Manchester’s biggest tech companies and beyond will join a week of tech events and socials designed by the community for the community.

Core Festival

At the heart of Manchester Tech Festival is a two-day multi-stage conference hosted on Wednesday 1st & Thursday 2nd November at Victoria Baths. Spanning three stages, the core festival gives you access to your choice of content covering topics including Women in tech, Diversity & Inclusion, Sustainability, Start-Up / Scale-up and Tech4Good, AI, data and more!
