“It was great to see Northern-based companies come together and celebrate how each of them uses technology to reach a global audience. Winning the award for Best Use of Technology for LiveLINK was the cherry on top, along with getting to climb on board concord. Listening to how it was created in the 60s and the progress of technology from then, to where it is now was incredible. I can’t wait to see the future of the Manchester tech scene.”

Sarah Barrett, Business Development Manager
