Eleventh annual IP EXPO to include a host of influential speakers
IP EXPO Europe, Europe's number one enterprise IT event has today launched its 2016 IT showcase, to take place on 5-6 October 2016 at the ExCeL in London. Following the success of last year’s event, IP EXPO Europe has announced a collection of influential speakers who will be holding keynotes over the two-day event focusing on the six themes of Cloud, Cyber Security, Networks and Infrastructure, Data Analytics, DevOps, and new for 2016, Open Source.
In the wake of an elected Brexit, this year’s IP EXPO Europe will explore how this change will impact the current demand for tech skills with a look to the demands of businesses in the future and the growth in technologies such as automation and artificial intelligence (AI). It will answer the many questions that businesses may have about the future of their companies through a series of seminars and speaker programmes as well as address the fears that many IT professionals may have regarding the future of the workplace.
With six sub-events under one roof, IP EXPO Europe 2016 is expected to attract a broad audience of enterprise IT professionals and enthusiasts to discuss how to evolve their businesses into a more technical future that embraces advancements like AI and network with other likeminded professionals in the industry.
Bradley Maule-ffinch, Director of Strategy for IP EXPO Europe, commented: “After record interest last year – 14,600 attendees across the two days – we are looking forward to a real buzz of activity at IP EXPO Europe 2016, driven by the wealth of knowledge and future-gazing our range of high profile speakers will provide, in combination with the rise and adoption of emerging technologies in the enterprise. We are also extremely excited to introduce the Open Source Europe sub-event, which is sure to create excitement among the IT leaders and professionals.”
