eCommerce Show North

 Manchester web hosting and eCommerce specialist UKFast is today confirmed as lead sponsor of the inaugural eCommerce Show North (eCSN), the largest ever gathering of eCommerce companies, vendors and suppliers outside of London.

eCSN brings together the leading exponents of eCommerce in the country, with businesses specialising in the full range of services and solutions. With the capacity to house 120 exhibiting businesses up to 5,000 attendees at Manchester’s Event City, eCSN is the only dedicated eCommerce exhibition in the north of England.

UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “It’s incredibly exciting for us to be involved with eCommerce Show North at the start of their journey.

“A decade ago there was a perceived gap in digital capability between north and south, whether that was correct or not. Manchester has proven itself as a hub for eCommerce excellence, with brands like Missguided, Late Rooms, BooHoo,, and of course UKFast.

“We’re looking forward to supporting the development of eCSN and to welcoming the UK’s incredible eCommerce community next October.”

eCSN takes place on October 11th and 12th 2017 and is being delivered by Prolific North and Don’t Panic Events, in conjunction with UKFast.

Martyn Collins, Expo Director at eCSN, said: “We are delighted to welcome UKFast as lead sponsor for eCommerce Show North. eCommerce Show North will become the key annual event for our sector to come together, celebrate success, learn new things and highlight to the world the strength of eCommerce expertise in the north.

“eCommerce is about bringing new money into the local economy, creating jobs and increasing prosperity. For me, eCommerce is the fuel that drives the northern powerhouse.”  

UKFast is one of the UK’s largest independently owned hosting providers, specialising in dedicated eCommerce hosting solutions optimised for Magento and Drupal.
