When we began to draw up the plans for UKFast Campus, a key priority was creating an event space to bring together the Manchester community; a place where startups could learn from established business people and vice versa.

Despite moving to UKFast Campus almost three years ago now, many people continue to ask why we would invest so much time and money into creating a unique environment. To me it makes perfect sense.Lawrence_Jones_final_web

Creating a home from home for our team – with an onsite gym, a crèche, a recording studio, an auditorium, a bar, sleeping pods, ping pong to name a few extra facilities – we created a space to fit our culture; people are happy and full of energy. You only need to come by to experience the atmosphere for yourself.

Alongside this, we have a space to help the UK’s business community to grow. We’ve always set the intention to enable and nurture growth not just for UKFast and our clients, but for the economy as a whole.

With that in mind, we’re extremely proud to have one of Manchester’s most talked about events spaces right here under our roof. UKFast Campus was designed with the creative, digital and tech communities in mind. And our 250-seat auditorium – with 100 sq. ft digital screen, commercial bar and break-out spaces – creates a flexible space suitable for conference events, networking, training sessions and launch parties, for free.

You never know what’s over the next hill, collaborating with others, working together and sharing our knowledge ensures that we’re as equipped as we can be to face the future.

We’re taking this to a new level with our latest event. Bringing together cloud heavyweights Microsoft, Cisco and Dell, with a keynote from Wired editor David Rowan, Cloud UK Live, on Wednesday 6th July, is exactly why I invested the time and money into our impressive events space.

Cloud UK Live sees our key industry partners Cisco, VMware, Dell and Microsoft speaking and exploring the latest shifts in cloud technology. It’s incredibly rare to see so many big industry players on the same stage, but we’re bringing them all together to share their insight into the past, present and future of cloud and tickets are free.

I’m incredibly proud to bring an event like this to Manchester and I hope it brings multiple levels of value to the business community – making new friends, business acquaintances and connections, as well as learning about the future of one of the world’s biggest technologies.

As you may well know, I’m on a mission to help put Manchester on the map as a leader in the digital world, events like this are what we need to do just that. Opportunities like Cloud UK Live don’t come around too often, particularly free ones!

I’d like to invite you to join us at this unique event, visit the Cloud UK Live website to register.
