Design Manchester 2016

Today sees the start of Design Manchester. I’m delighted that we’re partnering with them as the headline sponsor. It was great to see so many people here at Co-op for the partner launch event the other night.

Manchester is a known leader in the creative and media sector, with a vibrant eco-system of design and technology companies. The Co-op has always had communities at it’s heart and it’s vital the Co-op plays an active part the design and technology community.

I’m really excited about all the events this year and especially the things we’re helping to host or organise. The Women in Print exhibition here in our atrium from the 13th October, the Ladies that UX event on 18th October, the two day Generational workshops on the 17th & 18th October or the work we’re doing with our Co-op Academies. More about those events in due course. You can find the full schedule of events for DM16 here.
