NG Events Ltd - events 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.

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. We finished our event series this year with our flagship 2 day national NextGen Conference. NextGen 2015 events will be announced in January 2015. If you'd like to speak with us about hosting or sponsoring an event then please contact
