Liverpool Hailed As Top Tech City


Well it seems that the city in which I live has been used to take part in a survey, and its because of the results of this survey that Liverpool has been hailed the UK’s top tech city, pushing London into third place behind Cardiff. In a poll of 1,000 people carried out by Gadget Show Live (3-7 April, NEC), Scousers own on average around 40 gadgets, one more than the residents of the Welsh capital and three more than Londoners. The Scots fared poorly with Glasgow and Edinburgh taking 8th and 9th place in the top 10, hovering just above Geordies who own a mere 15 pieces of tech. Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and Belfast sit above them with 32, 30, 27 and 26 gadgets to their names.

“Is it really that surprising that Liverpool has come out top of the tech list and that Scousers have such a love affair with gadgets?” commented the Gadget Show Live’s Spencer Hidge. “Liverpudlians are renowned for their love of music, football and looking good so it makes sense that top tech like sound bars, wireless speakers, 3D TVs and hair straighteners made it onto their list.”

Based on the popular Channel Five programme, Gadget Show Live is the leading consumer tech event in the UK showcasing gadgets that have never been seen before in the UK. It takes place from 3-7 April at the NEC in Birmingham.  http://www.gadgetshowlive.net/birmingham
