We’re excited to announce that our first ever Shopify Plus Meetup is heading to Manchester on Thursday 5th July. Book your free place today!

After holding three previous Shopify Meetups in Manchester, this time we’re returning with an event specially tailored to high-growth stores, specifically on the theme of how your high-growth eCommerce store manages scale - perhaps the biggest challenge for any high-growth store.

The event takes place at LEAF on Portland St on Thursday 5th July from 6pm - 8pm and is a great opportunity for enterprise and growing eCommerce merchants to network, share insight and hear from speakers such as our sponsors Brightpearl and Patchworks, and our Shopify Plus Retailer Panel including Manière De Voir, Lounge Underwear and more.

Speakers will look at how your store can manage operating at scale, as well as how you can prepare for peak trading periods.

A free bar and burgers will also be on offer for attendees so make sure to book today to avoid disappointment.
