#MancSAS started life as #MancSEO, a networking group for SEO professionals in Manchester’s young, but rapidly growing digital marketing industry. Conceived as a primarily social event, once a month, for people working in search to get together for a few drinks and to hopefully help each other out.

As the sector grew locally and the search marketing landscape changed, the next generation of #MancSEO’ers took the bold step to branch out to include not just people working in SEO, but in other aspects of digital marketing including Analytics, Social, Paid Search, Content Marketing and more, and with an element of education added to the social purpose.

Now under revised management, #MancSAS aims to offer an opportunity for Manchester’s digital marketing community to share knowledge and develop our city’s reputation as a digital hub. We want to provide a platform for the next generation of talent to hone their conference skills through our events and to use the events to curate a resource which will serve digital marketers worldwide.

If you’ve never spoken at a conference and you think you have some knowledge to share, then we’d like to hear from you and if you are an experienced speaker and you want to try out a new idea, we’d like to hear from you as well. Hopefully, we’ll be able to help each other raise the bar for what people can expect when they bring their business to a Manchester agency.
