Trailblazing Tech returns as live event!

We are really looking forward to sponsoring and taking part in this year’s Trailblazing Tech conference, which is being hosted by Pro-Manchester. The event will take place on Friday 2 July 2021 at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester, and attendees will have the opportunity to attend in person if they wish to do so, or join virtually, with all the presentations being streamed live.

The hybrid event will feature keynote sessions and thought-provoking panel discussions, and we’re pleased that our very own Sarah Novotny (Head of Digital, Creative, and Tech Sector Business Support) is one of the speakers on the Skills and Education panel. Featuring live demonstrations from key leaders, Trailblazing Tech aims to explore how technology has evolved across a variety of sectors and promises to be very engaging with something to learn for each division.

The past year has inspired a period of digital transformation, with businesses needing to adapt technically, to keep up with the effects of the global pandemic. The retail industry has seen a shift from the traditional high street to an online-only experience, whilst the education sector has had to adopt methods of educating children virtually. Before the pandemic, a shift towards digitalisation was already underway, but COVID-19 has undoubtedly accelerated this process. The current trend has increased the need for in-demand digital and technical skills, and Trailblazing Tech aims to explore this new period of innovation.

Themes for this year's event include Retail, Green Tech, HealthTech, Skills and Education, Cyber Crime and FinTech, with the event aiming to explore the impacts of digital acceleration in the post-pandemic world we now live in.

Book now to join us on 2 July, either in person or virtually!
