Cloud Expo Europe: UK’s Prominent Tech Development Event Returns

February 21, 2020 by Luke James

The UK’s largest tech show, Cloud Expo Europe, is returning this year between March 11 and 12 at ExCeL in London.

The show is the UK’s biggest and most attended technology show which brings together technologists, business leaders, and senior business managers with experts and solutions developers in a bid to help accelerate digital transformation plans. 

The two-day event will feature a whole host of new content and highlights, including a focused platform where senior leaders in “big data” and AI, such as the Bank of England’s Chief Data Officer Peter Eckley, will share their stories and the developments they have been making in overcoming the biggest data challenges of today.

Facilitating Tech Innovation

It’s not all about data, though.

The annual free-to-attend event will bring together over 700 tier-1 solution leaders including Sophos, Zoho, McAfee, and IBM. 

The latter of the three, IBM, is this year’s sponsor and the company will be showcasing a range of immersive experiences focused on the cloud, the ‘ladder’ to AI, blockchain, and other emerging technologies. IBM will also be hosting a huge range of networking and learning opportunities, including 10 keynotes, four lunch briefings, and plenty of 15-minute TED-style talks in its own theatre. 

"Our capital city is a major hub for innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship so this is the perfect opportunity to bring together leading experts from IBM, our clients and our partners to demonstrate the very latest innovations that are empowering people to make change for good while transforming business and the way we work," said Andy Stanford-Clark, Chief Technology Officer, IBM UK & Ireland.

All in all, the event hall’s 26 conference theatres will host almost 400 hours’ worth of content on the biggest issues facing the industry.
