This month’s biggest tech events (Jan 23 to Feb 17)


The Internet of Things (IoT) Tech Expo Event returns to London today for its second year.

Taking place at the Olympia, the show will bring together key industries from across the world for two days of top level content, solution-based case studies and discussion.

Industries involved include manufacturing, transport, health, logistics, government, energy, insurance, agriculture, retail and automotive.

Around 6,000 attendees are expected to take in more than 200 speakers and more than 100 exhibitors.

The event runs from today, January 23, until January 24.

BusinessCloud’s next event is titled The Future of Manchester’s Digital Tech Scene, and will be held at the UKFast Campus in Hulme, Manchester, on January 27.

Manchester is the biggest digital tech cluster in the North with a growing ecosystem of tech entrepreneurs and scale-ups, co-working spaces and accelerators, investors and business angels, and accelerating business growth organisations such as the Business Growth Hub.

The Hub and BusinessCloud have joined forces to hear from some of the digital tech businesses across Greater Manchester and meet some of the local entrepreneurial talent.

Here is a round-up of events in the North West and throughout the UK over the next four weeks.
