If you were lucky enough to get an invite to IP EXPO Manchester last year you’ll know just what a great exhibition it is, and the great news is that the free registration period for IP EXPO Manchester 2016 is now open.
IP EXPO Manchester is a free-to-attend event, taking place on 18-19 May at Manchester Central, and this year will be targeting an area that we know is top of everyone’s must do list in 2016, Digital Transformation.
The event brings together experienced digital transformation experts and professionals from across the industry who are already driving digital transformation in their business and in the industry and who can show real-life examples of how they are helping achieve those transformations.
For those looking for help in other IT fields there’s a wide range of other technologies on display.
New for 2016, IP EXPO Manchester will encompass six events under one roof, covering all key aspects of enterprise technology, including Cloud and Infrastructure, Cyber Security, Data Centre, Data Analytics, DevOps and Unified Communications. Key themes within these sub-events will be the focus of seminars and panel discussions, including; the adoption of secure cloud platforms and transition from legacy infrastructures, support for workforce flexibility and global collaboration, data protection and security, and adoption of emerging tech practices, including DevOps and analytics.
This year’s speaker line-up includes Mandy Waite, developer advocate for Google Cloud Platform; Ian Massingham, technical evangelist at Amazon Web Services; and VMWare’s chief technologist Duncan Epping, with the opening keynote yet to be revealed.
The inaugural event in 2015 saw over 3,400 attendees through its doors, 73 speakers hosting free-to-attend seminars covering all aspects of IT, and 72 exhibitors in total. 2016’s event will focus more on emerging technologies and supporting business transformation through these platforms.
Bradley Maule-ffinch, IP EXPO Manchester’s director of strategy, says: “The huge success of IP EXPO Manchester 2015 was no surprise, if you take into account the continuous rise of the Northern Powerhouse and the excitement around how technology is transforming the enterprise. There are new cyber security threats every day which need to be protected against and incredible, game-changing new technologies which are constantly evolving . If understood and deployed properly, these technologies can revolutionise businesses of all types. IP EXPO Manchester brings together these technologies, world class experts and all the key vendors in one place and we are delighted to come back to Manchester again.”
