    Thanks for this. I have to admit I’ve never heard of OiConf, but it looks great- and even better that you’re coming up to the “Grim North”- to Manchester! I might actually book and come! Exciting stuff.

      Hi Ian! I can honestly say that Mark Schaefer was worth the entry money alone last year. The line up this year is amazing! Satisfaction guaranteed! It would be great to see you there. And please spread the word ‘up there’. We dpn’t have a foothold in the same way we have in Cardiff, so we really need supporters

        Thanks, Tony. I’ll do my best. Is there any extra material you can give me? There is a great Twitter list of Manchester marketers who would be interested. The Manchester tech and marketing scene is pretty vibrant so there would definitely be interested people- it’s just letting them know about it!

          We’ll have a website up shortly which is probably the best bet, up to now there are just the couple of blogs Ive done and the eventbrite links to the early bird tickets. Where is this fabled list you speak of? maybe if I or Oiconf could follow that we’d be in with a good chance?!
