Enterprise IT show IP EXPO Europe recently concluded at ExCeL London, having welcomed 15,671 delegates from 3-4 October.
The show was co-located with Digital Transformation EXPO, and featured over 300 exhibitors and over 250 exclusive seminar sessions, including an incredible opening day one keynote from legendary astronaut, Chris Hadfield.
The former commander of the International Space Station regaled the audience with tales of his time orbiting the earth and left a strong message on the importance of collaboration.
Andy Steed, director of content at IP EXPO Event Series, commented: “Over the last 13 years we’ve strived to make IP EXPO Europe a meeting place for the technology community, a place where people can get together to learn about the latest developments in technology, discuss the challenges they face in their organisation and activate new ideas.
“Once again, feedback from those who attended has been overwhelmingly positive, and we can’t thank our exhibitors and speakers enough for continuing to make this an unmissable event.”
Other popular seminars at IP EXPO Europe 2018 included sessions from Andrew Keen, author and commentator on the digital revolution, on how to realise the benefits promised of the digital revolution, and Dr Hannah Fry, BBC presenter and UCL mathematics lecturer, who discussed how to be human in an age of machine algorithms.
Mayank Prakash from the Department for Work and Pensions shared his experience delivering the departments digital transformation, and Carla Echevarria of Google covered how threats from AI don’t come from malicious machines, but those that create them.
IP EXPO Europe will return next year as part of Digital Transformation EXPO at ExCeL London, from 9-10 October 2019.
