SMC_MCR is taking a break in November but will be back at the start of December. We’ll see you then! Look out for details about the next event here, or join our email list to be kept up-to-date in your inbox.
Our May event, looking at Manchester’s digital future is fast approaching, and we want to make sure it covers the right issues.
Core to Manchester’s digital future is the Greater Manchester Growth Plan, while Manchester City Council recently outlined its ‘ambitious plans for a digital city‘. These will be good starting points for the discussion, and we will of course be opening up the debate to the floor for questions and comments from the audience, but what issues are important to you?
Please leave comments below this post and we’ll draw on them when we’re planning the flow of the debate.
Interest in this event has been enormous, and we’re already at full capacity, but we’ll open up more free tickets as and when we can. It takes place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Manchester city centre on Tuesday 15 May from 6.30pm. You can add yourself to the waiting list here.

It’s Christmas and our third birthday all rolled up into one and to celebrate, we invite you all to join us at Matt and Phred’s on Tib Street for the SMC_MCR Christmas/third birthday get together/knees up.
To complement the usual SMC goodness, we will be hosting a talk by Paul Stokes, publisher and co-founder of popular satirical news site, The Daily Mash.
Following the success of our return on Tuesday, we’re looking for volunteers to help make SMC_MCR even better.
If you want to get involved, we want to hear from you. Some examples of what we want:
- People to help plan future events and to get involved with arranging guest speakers.
- People to help with organisation on the nights themselves.
- Sponsors to help us make more of our events.
- A logo (but more on that in a separate post soon).
Volunteer meet up will be at 6pm in Common on Edge Street, Manchester on Thursday 29th September
After a brief hiatus, SMC_MCR is back with a refreshed focus.
Over the coming days and weeks, we’ll be transitioning to this site from the previous Ning site we used. More information will follow shortly, so stay tuned!
