Many things spring to mind when you think of Manchester in a creative, digital and technology capacity. Pioneers of computer science and leaders in digital health, it’s a top 20 European digital city and home to the continent’s largest digital hub. As the third most influential city in Europe in terms of talent, location and cost, Manchester innovates, inspires and always looks to the future.

With over 250 years of innovation, this engaging city continues to be at the forefront of emerging technology. In 2016, Manchester was selected as the UK’s IoT Demonstrator City and received a government award to invest in smart city technology.

The CityVerve project, located in the city’s innovation district, Corridor Manchester, will pioneer new approaches and technologies that will improve the lives of those living in the region and showcase how IoT will create the smart cities of tomorrow.

CityVerve involves public and private sector organisations ranging from SMEs to large global corporates, who will design and deliver a series of solutions around the themes of transport, energy, health and culture.

Looking for a collaborative opportunity?

Manchester will be at this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) between 12th – 15th March. Meet us at stand 1235.
