Our objective should be to run at least two, and hopefully more Amplified events in the North West this year.  From the contacts and people that are interested so far, it's likely that Manchester will be the location, but we could look at Liverpool or elsewhere too.  We've made contact with Manoj Ranaweera, who runs North West StartUp 2.0 (http://www.nwstartup20.co.uk/) and Stewart Townsend of Sun who runs their Startup Essential programme (http://uk.sun.com/startupessentials/).  In turn, they've connected us with Kate Lowes who was involved with Twestival up here. 


Hopefully we can connect with other groups and try and get the first event to happen before the end of March.  Tiger Tiger could be a possible venue, but any other suggestions would be welcome.



A couple of other possibilites for venues would be FACT (this might fit into their Climate for Change season?), the Leaf Tea Shop (which is where Liverpool Twestival was held), or the Novas Contemporary Urban Centre (where Barcamp Liverpool was held).  Those are listed in descending order of how well I know anyone there to ask about it, but am happy to investigate further if need be - AMc.


Would anyone be interested coming along to the #smc_mcr Social Media Cafe Manchester and talking about this. It has relocated to the Contact Theatre, Oxford Road, Manchester for the Futuresonic Social Technogies Summit 14th May 6pm. The wiki is here http://socialmediacafemanchester.pbwiki.com/
