THIS WEEK:  Binary Festival 2018 launches second year in the Baltic Triangle

Liverpool’s second Binary Festival is happening this week, supported by principal partners Bruntwood, Baltic Creative and Liverpool City Council. On Thursday 22 March, the biennial, city-wide tech festival will celebrate the best of the city region’s innovators, inventors, makers and creators.

Each year also welcomes a host of tech, digital and creative businesses from across the UK.

Tickets are now sold out for the festival’s keynote speakers. Speakers include: Andy Kent, CEO of Angel Solutions; Amanda Follit, founder of TH_NK; science and computing experts Sarah Wiseman and Emer Maguire; as well as our own Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram.

If you missed out on tickets this year, all is not lost. Binary Festival have just announced a selection of first-come-first-served free tickets to a selection of the programme. Some of the events include:

  • An Intelligently Artificial World – a session demystifying the applications and implications of using AI in business, hosted by BIMA and Feed Forward, and moderated by Mando Agency.
  • Where There’s Tea There’s Hope – A brief introduction to the world of tea, with huge collection of samples and tasters.
  • How to Grow your YouTube Channel – Christian Hughes, co-founder of Toddler Fun Learning YouTube channel (278k Subscribers), talks you through how to turn your interest in vlogging into a career.
  • Many more events, including sessions on creative PowerPoint, Wine Tasting, and Extended Reality/Immersive Tech

As well as all this, Hinterlands, an independant creative space from the people who brought you Constellations, will be opening its doors to the public for the first time especially for the event.

Rebecca Wild, MD for Hinterlands said: “We’re delighted to be launching Hinterlands: our brand new creative and digital event space with the Binary Festival. It’s a fantastic partnership event and demonstrates the creative, industrious and pioneering ethos of the Baltic Triangle and the wider creative and digital community.”

Binary Festival 2018 will be taking delegates from outside the city around the Baltic Triangle Area. There, Liverpool digital businesses will get the chance to inspire, discover, and, most of all, show-off. Beginning with a shared lunch at Baltic Market, they will then move on to various gatherings across the city where Liverpool’s best and brightest ‘CreaTech’ companies will be showcasing their work.

Mark Lawler, Managing Director for Baltic Creative CIC said, “Baltic Creative CIC is again delighted to sponsor Binary Festival for its second year running. We hope to see individuals and businesses, not only from Liverpool but from across the north-west, descending on our city to come together, share stories, talk about all things tech and get inspired.”
