Hosted at Manchester Central Convention Complex on March 11th and 12th, 2020, it will be the cornerstone of Digital City Festival, a wider celebration of digital taking place across Manchester.

Since digital has become so ubiquitous, Prolific North and Prolific London are proud to bring together industry leaders from around the region, country and world to collaborate and contribute to further digital successes.

Marketing Show North

Now in its fifth year, Marketing Show North is Prolific North's longest-running expo event. It is the largest marketing event of its type outside London, and provides two days of top-level keynotes, marketing masterclasses, and engaging talks from experts.

The show explores what matters to brands and marketing professionals, offering a unique place to experience new innovations and explore marketing solutions that promise to change the industry.

eCommerce Show North

Given the dominance of online retail, eCommerce Show North is an unmissable event that serves to show brands the exciting ways they can reach customers and discuss tackling the challenges that face the industry.

So many technological advancements promise to change how retailing is conducted - and eCommerce Show North will provide the earliest look at some of the solutions changing the industry.

Tech Show North

Tech Show North is designed to offer an incubation point for some of the most forward-thinking organisations in the country, if not the world.

Join us at Tech Show North to fully witness the skyrocketing growth of our tech scene, and get the chance to engage with the people behind the sector's success.

Media Zone

New this year at the Digital City Expo, hosted within Manchester Central, the Media Zone will celebrate the independent-minded and limitlessly creative nature of the region.

It will be dedicated to celebrating the ambitious media companies, independents, boutique agencies, disruptive start-ups and scale-ups that make up the digital industry in the country right now.

Digital City Festival, Manchester

Digital City Festival is a week-long event that encompasses every aspect of the North's booming digital economy.

Across Manchester, companies will be coming together to connect and innovate in unison, focusing on Digital City Expo at Manchester Central.
