We exhibited at the eCommerce Expo North in Manchester last week and based on the number of visitors and vibrancy around the seminar rooms and exhibition hall, it would appear that London is not the sole hub of online creativity in the UK. Thanks must go to the show organiser Justin Opie and his colleagues for having the vision and courage to expand outside London. We presented a seminar to over 100 delegates who it has to be said, were eager to learn and thankful that they did not need to travel 200 miles for free education from the likes of Google, IMRG, Paypal and, of course, Exact Abacus! Let us hope that the success of eCommerce Expo North heralds the regionalisation of trade events and helps make free knowledge more accessible to marketing/IT professionals and entrepreneurs based beyond the M25.
