About Manchester


Manchester has recently been announced as European City of Science and thus it is fitting that WCICT2017 is being held in this vibrant city.

Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England with a rich industrial heritage. 

The Castlefield Conservation Area’s 18th-century canal system harks back to the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, and you can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry.

The revitalised Salford Quays dockyards now houses the Daniel Libeskind-designed Imperial War Museum North and The Lowry cultural centre.

Manchester has grown from the first industrial city and the birthplace of the computer, to be the central hub of the “Powerhouse of the North” of England – a thriving, modern, knowledge-based city amongst the top European locations for science, education, business and leisure.Manchester is firmly established as a leading international conference destination with an impressive track record.
