What's happening this year?

Accelerating growth in a data-driven world

 

Why should you attend?

Now in its 8th year, our annual Digital Futures conference has grown into the premier event for TMT industry leaders.

 

Hosted in Central London at Kings Place, delegates will hear the latest insights and data-driven research on how key technologies like AI, IoT and automation are being applied to drive productivity, deliver new services and create real customer value.

 

This year we have joined up with Ovum Industry Congress, our well-established forum for enterprise leaders involved in business technology. 

 

If you are leading your team and enterprise towards digital transformation, then the Digital Futures event is where you need to be.

 

You'll have the opportunity to network with your peers from other enterprises and explore where growth can be expected, identify which business models will prevail and provide grounded, well researched insights as to how your organization can harness these new technologies.
