About BSidesMCR

BSides Manchester is one of the premier UK technical cybersecurity conferences.  It is run under a Community Interest Company (CIC) and is a not-for-profit company and event.  It is an inclusive event open to anyone in the InfoSec community and is organised by handful of dedicated Security Professionals volunteers who give up their own time, skills and knowledge for free.  If you think you could help organise the event, then contact us on

Sponsorship Opportunities

The last 5 years of BSides Manchester would not have been possible without the help and support of our fantastic sponsors and supporters, so a big thank you to you all. This year there are even more great sponsorship opportunities available.  Details can be found on our sponsorship pages.  Please get involved and support this community focused event.

CFP (Call for Papers)

​NOW CLOSED (closed 22nd June 2019)


Several batches of tickets will be released to give everyone a chance of getting one regardless of when you work, sleep, study, etc. 

Please see our Ticket page for more details.

The number of tickets we can release, the swag we can give away, the free food & drink available, and the after party bar tab are all dependent on the income (mainly sponsorship) we receive, so please encourage companies to get involved.
