Lee Frater, Digital Growth Manager at the Business Growth Hub, said: “Digital technology is transforming the way we work and live and our conference was looking at the future business landscape and how companies can use these new revolutionary developments to drive growth for the future. “Greater Manchester is looking to become a leading digital hub within Europe by 2020 so it is crucial that we inspire and excite businesses about the potential of the technology out there. We hope this event has been able to show them just what support is available to help them understand and acquire the right skills, choose the right solutions and achieve that all important digital advantage.”
