Business Rocks


A festival that empowers the community from early stage start-ups to leading tech brands. Our philosophy is to bring together the world’s most connected & fearless technology entrepreneurs and brands together to create an untouchable magic that empowers leaders to take their business to the next level.

Our audience should expect the unexpected! We’re not a normal technology expo or conference; it’s a festival of motivation, creating connections, pitching for life-changing investment, finding investors, meeting your idols and at its core an empowerment experience that will change the way you think as a leader.

We’re rough around the edges but that echo’s the city we love – Manchester and we embrace it. That’s why we bring some of the most rebellious tech leaders to the city to that does things differently.

Over 2 years the festival has grown from 200-person conference to 2000 + attendees in 2016, at #BR2017 we will see 5000 of the world’s most connected, fearless entrepreneurs & tech leaders descend on Manchester on 3 – 4 May 2017 as we set to empower the technology community and create some magic.
