Jargon PR will also be present on-site, managing the press office and coordinating interviews with leading industry figures. 

The combined showcase DTX & UCX Manchester 2023 will connect leaders in cloud, networks, data, devops, cybersecurity and modern workplace to tackle challenges together. 

Jargon PR’s Associate Director Sue Souter commented: “We love working with Imago to make Manchester Tech Week a success - and it’s great to be back supporting them this year.

“We’ll be on site at DTX & UCX Manchester on May 17-18 to handle all media requests and generate content - it is a hugely innovative, fast-paced sector  - and building awareness of the show in the run up to drive interest in key themes and support registrations.”

Head of Research & Portfolio Development for DTX Natasha Taylor stated: “Manchester is a world-leading hub of technology and innovation, which makes it the perfect place to host the biggest digital transformation and IT event the North has ever seen.

“This year is going to be the best yet - featuring a phenomenal lineup of guest speakers, a huge variety of exhibitors and some surprises on the show floor.
