New Event Series Launched to Develop Greater Manchester's CreaTech Sector

Digital Futures, Creative Manchester and the Turing Innovation Catalyst (TIC) Manchester have jointly launched a new series of events aimed at supporting the development of a network of industry professionals working in CreaTech and related industries.

After being awarded funding to foster the growth of Greater Manchester's burgeoning CreaTech sector, Digital Futures, Creative Manchester, and the Turing Innovation Catalyst (TIC) Manchester are launching an exciting series of networking events.

The event series aims to provide a platform for industry professionals within the creative, technology, and digital realms to connect, collaborate, and explore avenues for collaboration and innovation. Launching in March 2024, these events promise to bring together the vibrant community of digital and creative professionals in the Greater Manchester area.

The event series is in line with the aspirations of the Greater Manchester city region to develop the CreaTech sector and to facilitate partnerships between The University and the wider GM Business Community.

Each networking event will focus on a different section of the CreaTech industries, ranging from Sound and Vision to Fashion and Creative AI. The Digital Artisans networking event will focus on those working in artisan crafts and manual arts looking to learn to exploit the opportunities of CreaTech and position themselves at the intersection of the digital and creative sectors. 

Throughout March 2024 we will be bringing together professionals from the creative, digital and technological industries in Greater Manchester under the overarching theme of "How Do We Make Manchester Great?".
