Liverpool is known for its rich historical heritage, flamboyant musical culture and thriving business community. With Binary Festival just around the corner, we are taking a look at why events like this are important to bridge the gap within the North to help create the next generation tech community.
Binary Festival was established in 2016 out of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle and the 2018 edition will be the first year Bruntwood is sponsoring the event. Through celebrating the city’s tech community and cultural talent, Binary Festival complements our aim to make our great city regions, greater.
Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham have huge amounts of talented tech individuals and businesses, and events such as Binary allow these cities to unite and work together. By giving the city a voice, they are able to show the rest of the country that the North is a strong tech community for businesses can thrive.
“Binary Festival was founded upon the principle that creative, digital and tech companies in Liverpool deserve to be heard nationally. Thel Binary Festival provides a platform for business to share their great stories, connect and ultimately embrace opportunities for business growth.” says Herb Kim, Festival Director.
Binary will play host to a series of ‘Keynotes’ presentations given by industry-leading speakers from multiple different business backgrounds, covering science, digital media, innovation, technology, music and arts.
The festival aims to create a community for businesses in the North, allowing people from different areas of tech to work together, share and learn from each other.
At Bruntwood, we believe that culturally vibrant cities are the blueprint to making an area a popular place to work and live. Events like Binary help mold the vision of the city which will in turn, attract the best talent in the country.
Colin Forshaw, Bruntwood’s Regional Director for Liverpool understands the importance of the festival. “Binary provides a platform for creative, innovative ideas to develop and grow, showcasing the incredible talent that Liverpool has to offer while raising the profile of creative and digital communities across the North,” he says.
“Binary Festival feels like a natural fit due to our aligned vision of bringing together the North’s tech and digital talent. With over 280,000 tech workers in the North, we believe it is vital to support those individuals and create tech communities where they can innovate and thrive,” says Colin.
