Attention all entrepreneurs, start-ups, movers, shakers, and future world changers: get yourselves to Manchester this April for Business Rocks 2016 Tech, Music, and Investment summit.

What’s the goal of this event? To gather the brightest, hungriest, and most creative minds from around the globe together in one place to generate, incubate, and execute products and services that can change the world for the better.

Founded by TechCluster’s Jonny Cadden, this event promises not only to be the UK’s biggest technology conference, but one of the most influential happenings in the business world to date.

From April 21st – 22nd, over 5,000 tech founders, developers, investors, and journalists will gather at Manchester Central to attend talks from hundreds of international speakers and discover 300 exhibits from new and growing businesses.

This is not your typical business conference. Business Rocks 2016 is designed to be a disruptive sensory overload of inspiration, creativity, and possibility.

Rub shoulders with thought leaders, tech founders, CXOs, global accelerators, and venture capitalists. Witness product launches in real time. Sit in on pitch battles between start-ups. Attend after hours party summits. Increase your network tenfold with people from every corner of the globe. Discover new businesses poised to take the world by storm. Get in on the ground floor of life-changing opportunities still in their infancy. Go on speed dates with investors. Rock out to incredible music. And hear talks from some of business and tech’s most influential minds.

Compete in the Global Inov8 Startup Pitch Competition to win the £50,000 cash prize and the chance to accelerate your start-up with support from some of the globe’s biggest brands.

The headliner is none other than Steve Wozniak. (In fact, you can enter a competition to “Meet the Woz” for a #BR2016 VIP all-access pass and an invitation to his private Q&A session!)

Other speakers include Mark Masterson from Google, Jeff Hoffman from Priceline, Heather Wilde from Evernote, Brian Fanzo (top 1% global social influencer), CEO Gemma Godfrey, Mind Candy’s Divinia Knowles, Paul Stannard of World Science Aid, Bozza CEO Emma Kaye, Mark Fahy of the London Stock Exchange, Gemma Milne and Nicole Yershon from Ogilvy Labs, Google expert [little ole me!] Susan, futurologist Martin Lucas, and even 15-year old CEO and founder of goCreative, Brandon Relph.

Plus hundreds of other experts in fields ranging from SaaS, ecommerce, app marketing, IoT, gaming, Fintech, wearables, managing hyper growth, to UX and UI design.

Oh, and music. Lots and lots of music.

Why music? Well, when you control the music you control the mood of the room. And BR2016 aims to keep minds and eyes upbeat and alert, buzzing with opportunities and possibilities. Music engages your right brain and encourages creativity to facilitate connection, combination, and creation of entirely new and innovative ideas.

This is not a sit-down-and-take-notes event. This is a full sensory experience dedicated both to solving the world’s problems using tactics and technology, and tickling your creative side by inspiring insights and energizing emotions.

Still not convinced? Don’t think you’re qualified? Feeling scared? If for whatever reason you’re still on the fence about attending, do yourself a favour and just JUMP. Jonny Cadden initially didn’t feel qualified to found the UK’s largest tech conference but he took the leap anyway, and now here we are.

Business Rocks 2016 needs you. The world needs you. If you have a desire to make the world a better place then you belong at #BR2016. Because that’s what this event is all about. Grab your ticket and we’ll see you there.
