After a successful inaugural event in 2022, welcoming over 3,500 delegates, Manchester Tech Festival (MTF) is back and set to be more impressive than ever, taking place at Victoria Baths in October 2023. The two-day festival will feature engaging panel discussions, lively debates, and thought-provoking talks, while offering a unique opportunity for attendees to connect with some of Manchester’s leading tech businesses at the expo.

In addition to the main event at Victoria Baths, MTF has expanded its program to include a week of track days and networking socials held at various venues across the city. These events will provide further opportunities for members of Manchester’s thriving tech community to connect, learn, and collaborate. The popular invite-only Leadership Conference will also return as part of the 2023 festival lineup.

MTF’s mission is to address Manchester’s digital poverty and digital inclusion challenges, while celebrating the city’s dynamic tech scene. The festival has received strong support from its founding partners, including Moneysupermarket Group,, Venturi, Morson, and BJSS, who are all returning for the 2023 edition.

Amy Newton, Festival Director of MTF, highlighted the event’s commitment to fostering connections within the Manchester tech community. “Through our diverse program of speaking opportunities, panel discussions, and exclusive networking events, MTF aims to showcase Manchester’s innovative tech businesses and bring together a truly vibrant community. We are excited to build upon the success of last year’s festival and continue to support the growth of the local tech sector.”
