What is Manchester Tech Festival?
Manchester Tech Festival is a week-long festival, created by the tech community for the tech community.
The event brings together professionals in the community, from engineers to investors – featuring meet-ups, pop-ups, lectures, hackathons, discussions, debates and socials throughout the week.

About our exhibition stand
It wouldn’t be a WeDo: Digital stand if it wasn’t a bit of fun.
That’s why we’re bringing you the competitive quiz challenge, Headline Hoax Hunt – think Jackbox meets Have I Got News For You. All you need is a mobile phone and some thinking skills to see if you have what it takes to take home a brand new iPad Air.
The game was created by the team as part of our recent hackathon, and was a hit in the presentation round.
Head over to Stand 13 at Victoria Baths on Wednesday or Thursday to try it out for yourself. You’ll also have the opportunity to see how the game works and explore some of the tech behind it.
Plus, we’re hiring right now. Want to join a fun, hardworking and ambitious team? We’d love to meet you.
