You’re probably aware that every quarter PushON host industry meetup events in Manchester and throughout the UK. It’s something that we as a business, take great pride in. We want to build a community of digital experts gathering Paid Media gurus, SEO enthusiasts and web development specialists alike.

We recently hosted our second Magento Meetup and Online Marketing Meetup in Manchester at WeWork in Spinningfields. Both events had a good turnout of around 40 digital professionals and industry-led speakers from agency and client-side, as well as fantastic businesses sponsoring and supporting the meetups.

Manchester Magento Meetup June 2019 – #McrMagentoMeetup

Our most recent Magento Meetup took place in early June. Our wonderful friends at HardSoft sponsored and headlined this event with a panel discussion on ‘Growing Your Agency’. The panel was hosted by Simon Wharton, PushON’s co-founder and lover of all that is goth.

The panel had three participants; James Lees, Marketing Director at Mabo, Steven Oakes, Head of Digital Strategy at Shoot the Moon and Matt Hackett, Digital and eCommerce Recruitment Specialist and founder of Canny Recruitment.

Ian Cassidy from CTI Digital gave a fantastic talk on ‘Evolving eCommerce Payments Using the Payment Request API’. Simon Muldowney from Price Searcher held a great discussion on PPC and an alternative option to Google Shopping; and finally, Mr Wharton led a discussion on the future of the High Street, a topic that is sure to remain a major talking point over the next year or two.

It was a fantastic event and we can’t wait for the next one.

Thanks to Sophie and the team from HardSoft for the support and the goodie bags.

If would like a copy of the presentation slides from the speakers, please get in touch with us, and we’ll happily send them over.

Our next Magento Meetup in Manchester will be towards the end of this year, so keep an eye on our meetup page and Twitter for updates.

Online Marketing Manchester Meetup June 2019 – #OnlineMarketingMcr

Only a few days ago we hosted our second Online Marketing Meetup. We’re receiving great feedback for this event, so do come along to, or speak at, our next event.

We had another full-house attendance as our fantastic speakers discussed the many different aspects of marketing. The line-up began with Pierre Hun from Hun Consulting, who spoke on ‘How to deliver data-driven marketing within a global organisation’. Jonny Swindlehurst from Last Dotspoke on ‘Getting the most out of and how to successfully manage freelance resource’. Liz Booth from Buffalo 7 provided us with some fantastic expert advice on ‘Smashing your presentation’. Finally, PushON’s head of Paid Media Alex Hogan, did his first public talk on ‘PPC for store visits’.

A huge thank you to our partners and friends over at dotdigital for providing some surprise goodies!

Would you like to speak at one of our events?

We’re always looking for speakers and sponsors to support our meetups, so if you want to showcase your knowledge and expertise in a particular digital marketing field, please get in touch.

PushON doesn’t host these events to promote our business, we do it to develop digital marketing including eCommerce, online marketing and Magento/web development in Manchester, and further afield including Bristol. Speaking of which, we will be hosting our first eCommerce Meetup in Reading soon, so keep an eye out for updates.

We hope to see you at our next Meetup!
