Circle Square where Roku are based in Manchester

Digital City Festival 2024 kicks off by bringing together 100+ key industry leaders across the North’s digital and tech sectors to discuss:

  • Growth & innovation of the North’s digital economy
  • Access to investment & funding in the North
  • The talent pipeline
  • How digital & tech can support the green agenda

Home to the leading tech hub outside of London (Greater Manchester), and a combined £28bn digital ecosystem, the North is a hotbed of innovation and talent which has attracted a succession of global companies, like Amazon,, Sage and Roku, whilst developing home-grown startups and scale-ups.

The joined forces of dynamic cities in Northern England make a compelling offer – access to a globally competitive workforce, supported by graduates from across 25 universities each year, excellent support networks and collaboration across a robust digital infrastructure. Companies based here raised more than £500m in 2022, further evidence to validate the North as a tech hub of international significance. 

To continue this fantastic story of success and innovation, Digital City Festival know businesses, support organisations, as well as the education and public sectors in the North need to continue to collaborate and share ideas.
