My rememberable first time visiting Manchester




Last weekend I went to a technology conference in Manchester! It was my first time visiting the city, and it took four hours by train for me to arrive, but I had my friend who I have known since Sixth Form waiting for  me on the other side. She studies at the University and kindly offered a place for me to stay whilst on my trip. It was also a double reunion since our other friend who studies at Edinburgh also came down the weekend.

Representatives from Google, Intel, Facebook, and other prominent companies in addition to influential people in the tech industry showcased their work and gave advice on how to climb up the tech ladder. After a full day of presentations and workshops, it was a night of exploring Manchester. I loved the eclectically styled bars, it gave me a few decor ideas...

I did not get to tour the city during the day, so that is defintely an incentive to visit Manchester again.
