# CoinFestUK 2018
In 2016 CryptoBatesGroup brought CoinFest to the UK for the first time. Hosted and organised by Adam Rizvi and held in Manchester, the event attracted more than 200 people. The CoinFestUK 2017 event was hosted April 7-8, 2017, at the Manchester Conference Centre. The event was a great success and was very well received and included five workshops, 19 speakers and 11 exhibitions and had visitors from around the world.
