CitySession: Tech North Digital Showcase

Date: 1 March 2017 - 1 March 2017, 6:00 - 8:00

Location: HOME, 2 Tony Wilson Place, Manchester, M15 4FN

Join us for our first Digital Showcase, in association with Tech North, where we will showcase the hottest start-ups, SMEs and fledgling tech businesses. Be inspired as we explore the successes and pitfalls of these young companies and discover the newest technology set to impact the city. We ask the question: could the North be home to the next big thing in Tech?

ProxiSmart is an award-winning specialist in smart beacon solutions – an early stage SME that is developing two flagship solutions that sit within the ‘smart cities’ agenda. ParkingPerx removes the barriers to trade associated with car parking for ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses. It rewards consumer spending with free parking and disrupts the car parking industry by changing how car parking fees are collected. Aimed at locations that are looking to invigorate the ‘high street’, it drives footfall, spending and location loyalty whilst collecting very powerful data that can be used to help formulate policy on travel, parking and business development. TravelPerx generates a boost to the city centre economy whilst incentivising greener travel choices. ProxiSmart will be represented by founder, Chris Reed.
