Manchester calling as Chinwag hits the digital north

The internet was meant to be the thing that liberated us from place. Anyone could design a website or run a company from their bedroom or a remote eerie. All you needed was a computer and an ISDN connection, right?

But some habits die hard. Basing your web business in London seems to be one of those things. Despite this, there's a thriving scene around Britain, and we're keen to give as many people and places as possible access to our services.

So we're gearing up with some excitement for our first panel discussion event outside of the big smoke - especially as it's in Manchester, the bustling hub of so much creativity and success in the digital north.

If you fancy joining us for some discussion and debate on the topic of 'User Centred Advertising', you can book now and get the early bird rate of just £20+VAT (£40+VAT thereafter).

For that you get some complimentary drinks and snacks, and a chance to quiz the panel, featuring:

Hugo Drayton - CEO, Phorm (UK)
Dan McDevitt - Director, w00t!media
Priya Prakash - Head of Product, Flirtomatic
Charles Reid - Director, MediaVest
CHAIR: David Bird - Senior Lecturer, MSc Digital Marketing & Communications, Manchester Metropolitan Uni

It all kicks off at 6pm, next Tuesday 15th April at the CUBE, 113-115 Portland Street, Manchester M1 6DW. You can book here.
