The event is designed to raise the city’s profile on the international tech and investment scene, showcasing Manchester (and the wider North of England) as the vibrant, multi-cultural, music and tech hub that it is.

Business Rocks will bring the global tech ecosystem together for two days of incredible product launches, demos, networking, late night party summits, pitch battles and showcase the next BIG opportunities within technology market from startups, investors and global brands.
