Agile Manchester 2020 Coronavirus update

Due to the ongoing situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak, and after much careful deliberation, we have taken the decision to defer a face-to-face Agile Manchester conference until 14-15 September 2020. We will be holding an additional 1-day virtual conference in its place on 15 May 2020.

This is obviously a difficult decision, but the welfare of our participants and creating a safe environment for the event are the most important factors for us. We are in the process of finalising our plans for both events and will share details as soon as we can.

We are currently in the process of contacting all speakers, sponsors and ticket holders about these changes, but if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.
