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.
At our Events, independently of suppliers, technologies and services, we provide the space and freedom for knowledge transfer, collaborative planning, community development and the sharing of great ideas, to help with this massive digital transformation.

Previous Study Tours have taken delegates to cities in Sweden and The Netherlands. In 2013 we visited Chattanooga (the USA’s first ‘Gigabit City’) and the Intelligent Community Forum Summit in New York.
