Join us on the 16th & 17th of September at MadLab in the heart of Manchester for another great SAP Inside Track event.

This is a free event, open to anyone with an interest or passion for anything relating to SAP.  Although free, spaces are limited so please reserve your ticket using Eventbrite.

After a few years absence, enjoying the hospitality of Sheffield Hallam University, this year the UK SAP Inside Track event is returning to Manchester, specifically to Manchester Digital Laboratory in the heart of the Northern Quarter of the city.  As with last year's successful event, this year will run over two days.  The first being a typical SIT event with a range of topics and interesting content.  Day 2 will again be a hands on event where attendees will be able to spend a day with a couple of product experts looking at building custom Fiori Launchpads and tiles, to really take advantage of the Fiori Launchpad technology.


As usual, there will be social events on the Thursday and Friday nights for anyone who wants to hang out in Manchester, grab a drink and have something to eat whilst discussing all manner of things.
