Ground-breaking expo Prolific North Live has announced EventCity as the chosen space for its 2017 event, after signing a three year deal with the venue for its expanding events schedule.
Building on the huge success of its first year, the media, marketing and creative industries expo has extended to a two-day exhibition at Manchester’s EventCity, February 15-16 2017, with three times the floor space of its first show.
Located on the doorstep of intu Trafford Centre, EventCity is the second largest exhibition space outside of London, and Prolific North Live will be spread across 6000m2 at the venue. All stands and seminars will be found in one huge, easy to navigate space, including networking and coffee areas, as well as plenty of food options.
Dunstan Carter, exhibition director of Prolific North Live, said: “We’re thrilled to be expanding our event and moving to the EventCity venue. In the heart of the North and with first-class facilities, it provides the perfect space for us to host such a fantastic gathering of creative minds.”
Showcasing the latest innovation in digital, broadcasting, PR, web, publishing, tech, marketing and advertising from across the North, the event promises to be the biggest ever gathering of media, marketing and creative industries professionals outside of London.

EventCity’s cutting edge facilities and technology, combined with being the second largest and most flexible event space out of London, provides the perfect setting for this hugely popular and growing Northern expo.”
