3-4 April 2019  |  Manchester Central

We’re back for our fifth year – and we’re excited to tell you all about what we’ve been working on to make IP EXPO Manchester 2019 better, bigger and cooler.

Who is IP EXPO for?

You! If you’re in IT or cyber security.

We’ve built a reputation as the best event for cloud, infrastructure and cyber security pros outside of London. But now we want you to tell your
colleagues working in data analytics, AI and software development as well as anyone working on IOT or Blockchain projects that IP EXPO Manchester is definitely for them too!

If you go to one event this year make it IP EXPO Manchester – it really does have something for everyone

What is IP EXPO Manchester?

It’s only the best IT and cyber security event outside of London.

IT and cyber security get more challenging each year and IP EXPO Manchester is here to help you and your colleagues.

This year we will have:

  • More tech demos
  • More tech case studies
  • More vendors (with more freebies)
  • More training courses
  • More beer
  • Cooler speakers

Whatever your interest, pain points or aspirations we want there to be something here for you.

All this will be taking place at our three co-located events.

We’re grouping all these events into one mega event called – Digital Transformation EXPO all taking place at the same place and the same time – how convenient is that!
