Salford City Council
HOST, formerly known as The Landing, was established in 2012 by Salford City Council and has played a major role in establishing Greater Manchester as a leading digital city region.
The vision was to create a world-class digital technology hub while at the same time providing positive social value and impact for young people and communities in Salford.
Since then, it has continued to evolve, connecting the city and its 249,000 residents to growing opportunities in and around the area to help secure jobs and investment.
HOST is continuing to build on this great pedigree by scaling a pioneering, inclusive eco-system to drive prosperity across the North.
