Dive into a world of possibilities—whether you’re looking to break into a new career, accelerate your professional growth, expand your network, or launch your own startup. Our festival offers a curated mix of intimate track days, cutting-edge fringe events, and our core festival featuring three stages of the latest tech innovations.

Whatever your vibe, Manchester Tech Festival’s laid-back evening socials are the perfect spot to connect with fellow like-minded attendees and speakers, share insights, and chill out over the day’s discoveries.


Manchester Tech Festival is designed to cater for all and is carefully curated to meet the needs of Manchester’s Tech community. 

Our specialised track days span the two weeks of the festival and zero in on key topics like Women in Tech and Leadership. This allows you to purchase tickets for the sessions that matter most to you.

True to our ethos, we deliver content that is raw, authentic, and brutally honest, with no topic off-limits. Each event features over six tech talks and two panels, offering ample opportunity to dive deep into the subject matter.

What’s more, our specialised track days attract individuals who share your interests, providing a unique chance to build your network with like-minded tech enthusiasts.

As always, our core festival will be held at the iconic Victoria Baths in Manchester. Over two  days, we’ll host three stages brimming with dynamic tech talks and panels on the topics that matter most to our community. Dive into the sessions that spark your interest and fuel your passion!

Between sessions, don’t miss our vibrant tech expo, showcasing over 20 of Manchester’s leading tech companies. Whether you’re hunting for your next big tech role, seeking innovative services to boost your business, or looking to build invaluable connections, the expo is the place to be. Join us for an unforgettable experience at the heart of Manchester’s tech scene!

At the end of each day, we gather attendees from all our conferences for a relaxed evening social. This is your chance to connect with tech enthusiasts from across the UK, meet the day’s speakers, and reflect on the day’s topics.

Our socials are designed to be welcoming and inclusive, offering a variety of refreshments and plenty of breakout spaces to facilitate meaningful conversations and networking.
