Tech-ing Manchester's Strengths to the Next Level

13 February 2017

Categories: Broadcast and Media

The creative industry is currently the fastest growing in the UK and proof of Manchester’s vibrant and competitive, digital and tech ecosystem gives testament to this. As cited in the Guardian, the city region is seen as a hot bed for emerging talent.

Tech hubs to clusters seen in the Northern Quarter, MediaCityUK, The Sharp Project, Manchester Science Partnerships, The Corridor and FinTech hub, The Vault, position Manchester as an important tech ecosystem which also includes co-working spaces such as Rise Manchester.

The Landing at MediaCityUK, Europe’s largest purpose-built creative hub, offers exciting opportunities for smaller, independent companies with ambitions to crack the UK’s digital content and a recent count stated there are currently 160 companies located within the dynamic hub. Being within close proximity to global broadcasters BBC and ITV ensures business residents have easy access to leading programmers, advanced technology and texting labs and the business support programmes currently in place are ideal for companies to be more sustainable.

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