A fantastic line-up, this year’s speakers include Ellen Van Loon (OMA), Sean Perkins (North), Naresh Ramchandani (Pentagram), Alex McDowell, Emily Forgot and Patrick Burgoyne (Creative Review). Local heroes include Hyper Island’s Tash Wilcocks, Lawrence Kitson of Co-op Digital and Jane Murison from BBC UX, with more to be announced.

Partnering with the Principal Hotel and Refuge, there’ll be a full afternoon and evening of creativity, with supporters G . F Smith and others hosting a showcase of print in the foyer, and an official after party at the Refuge for attendees to network, socialise and soak up some famous Mancunian spirit.
