Experience Your Festival Your Way

At the heart of Manchester Tech Festival is a two-day multi-stage conference hosted on Wednesday 1st & Thursday 2nd November at Victoria Baths. Tickets for these days include entry to Victoria Baths, access to your choice of talks across all three stages, plus; full access to our tech expo, community areas, calm zone and our exclusive evening socials. 

Surrounding the main festival are a number of specialist single stage conferences hosted at different venues across the city. Because you can’t be in two places as once, tickets for these days include entry to one conference plus one evening social. We’ll even throw in lunch on these days too! 

To explore the full range of talks visit our track day pages or our main festival page here. 

Please note: to ensure attendees can benefit from networking opportunities and attendance at our Leadership Day, tickets are limited to 2 tickets per company. Leadership content is aimed at C-Suite, Heads of, Directors and Founders. If you are from a recruitment company or consultancy our PSL for the event is full for those attendees. We kindly ask you do not purchase a ticket to allow us to keep the event balance. If you do purchase a ticket from one of those industries we will not allow entry and are not able to process a refund.
