Most online events are basically webinars, however, at TechUG Manchester you’ll be able to have many to many interactions just like real-life events.

TechUG is a completely independent user group community guided by local committee members. We run community events in Manchester twice a year so that local IT Pro’s can:

  • Experience an open forum for the Manchester IT community to come together & share ideas

  • Come along to network, consolidating your skills and knowledge base within the group

  • Develop an understanding of use cases and the architecture behind new solutions.

  • Hear content which has been selected for its educational value by fellow end users and customers

  • Benefit from our independence which enables our events to provide impartial guidance based on the groups’ wisdom

  • De-risk your new technology investments and upgrades by utilising the community.

  • Events are free to attend, with complimentary internet access, refreshments throughout the day and buffet lunch.

  • Come and “Geek out at the bar” at the end of the day and enjoy a few post-event drinks with old and new friends.

We hope to welcome you to our next Manchester Community event which is free to attend. Whilst we’re unable to offer our usual refreshments, lunch and networking drinks, they’ll be plenty of giveaways, spot prizes and great speakers.
