Connected North returns to Manchester in 2023

 

The push for better connectivity in the North as part of the government’s pledge to make gigabit capable networks available for 85% of the UK by the end of 2025 continues; and with it comes host of opportunities for the region. Improving the region’s digital infrastructure increases global competitiveness and encourage inward investment for the North.


The North of the UK is at a turning point post pandemic with the attention both locally and nationally to build back better by affording equal opportunity for previously underserved areas. Connected North 2023 will see 120 expert speakers and 1500 attendees from across the digital economy ecosystem for a dedicated regional forum on connectivity enabled social and economic growth.
