What we're about

Techs and The City is an inclusive space for people from all backgrounds within tech in Manchester to come together and share ideas, knowledge, best practice and discuss topics facing the industry. We will strive to organise one Meet-Up every other month with speakers and lightning talks and there will also be round table discussions, dinner debates, and regular social gatherings.

While we will have technology focused talks/events, the gap that we are looking to fill is looking at issues in tech facing members of the LGBTQ+, BAME, Working Parents, and general issues around Diversity and Inclusion. We will also be looking at holding Meet-Ups that focus on Mental Health within Tech and providing resources and somewhere to talk.

Techs and The City hopes to be a safe space for anyone within technology in Manchester to come to for advice on things like work, home, technology, even somewhere to live in the city.

Everyone is welcome.

Recruiters/Vendors/Suppliers are an important part of the tech ecosystem in Manchester, and we respect that you have a job to do and deserve to be involved in these events as well. All we ask is that you respectfully appreciate this is not a networking, business focused Meet-Up, it's a community event for people to share experiences and make friends. Gratuitously tapping people up for jobs/business will not be tolerated.
