NextGen Events - independent of suppliers, technologies and services

At our events we provide the space and freedom for knowledge transfer, collaborative planning, community development and the sharing of great ideas. New for 2015 is our partnership with 21c - a leading global ICT innovation firm - with whom we are offering a set of practical open data workshops, solutions and tools.

NextGen - at the heart of the UK’s digital transformation

The sustainable development of every aspect of the UK’s economy, our enterprises, our communities and government, is increasingly dependent on the quality of the digital infrastructure. The way we all live (and the way we work) is informed and enabled by this basic investment. Making these access networks fit for new purposes is a huge challenge - infrastructure investment will be needed throughout the decade as our digital economy yields massive benefits for UK enterprise, societal development and administrative efficiency.
