Apple experts open technology hub in Manchester


A new technology experience is coming to Manchester with the launch of a purpose-built space for people and businesses to shop, learn, share, create and collaborate.

The Sync technology hub will be the new home of all things Apple, located in the very heart of Manchester city centre on Deansgate.

Offering Apple products and those of other leading tech brands, its experts will also provide a range of services including walk-in and pre-booked repairs.

With regular training and seminars from leading tech professionals, and a co-working space, Sync will enable people to connect and work with other tech and business professionals under one roof.

Sync is powered by GBM Digital Technologies, the largest Apple Service Provider in the North. In the last two years, it has been the largest Apple Authorised Reseller based on revenue and is also in the Top 20 of the Tech Track Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in the UK.

Chris Costello, director of GBM, said: “As GBM, we have been working with small businesses, multinationals, schools and creatives to provide great Apple solutions and services for over 25 years.

“We felt it was time to build on our foundations to bring our technology expertise to consumers, giving them access to the latest technology, underpinned by experts who genuinely know their stuff.

“Sync isn’t just another tech shop. It’s where technology meets collaboration. We work with customers to help them use tech to make their personal and professional lives better, as well as providing them with a space to work, network and learn.

“Whether you’re looking for advice about the latest iPad or want to upgrade your MacBook, our friendly team are there to help.

“We also offer a range of support services, including data recovery, out of warranty services and repairs, while-you-wait upgrades and Mac recycling.”

The new store will open for business from 10am on Monday 12th March.

The opening follows a VIP launch on Thursday 8th March where guests were treated to an exclusive audience with Manchester United legend and leading digital entrepreneur, Gary Neville.

On the night, he shared his vision for the tech sector in Manchester and answered questions from the audience on his thoughts on the future of technology in Manchester.
