Mission Statement

Helping Liverpool and Manchester lead the way in innovation and new technologies and helping BIMA members in the region be good businesses and ambassadors for digital.

About the council

The North West is one of the country’s most exciting regions for digital innovation and new technologies. The North West Council helps BIMA members in Liverpool, Manchester and across the region to lead the way by creating a community of agencies, brands, start-ups, game developers and more.

Together, we’re working to protect and develop the North West’s digital ecosystem by growing BIMA’s local events programme. We’re partnering with local initiatives. And we’re helping BIMA members in the region be ‘good’ businesses and ambassadors for digital.
