About NextGen


NG Events Ltd creates, produces and manages unique events, conferences and study tours to highlight and bring about change in wider global sustainable development issues. We started in 2008 with our first NextGen conference in anticipation of the need to transform the UK's broadband infrastructure and to showcase key players in this new market and have come a long way since.

To enable fresh thinking the 'Digital Scotland 2013' and 'Intelligent Cities' Conferences were launched. With 21c - a specialist global ICT innovation firm we are offering a set of practical open data workshops and tools and with partner Ventura Next we offer workshops and mini-MBAs in NextGen Fibre Networks.

In 2016 we started to work with new clients including the Global Wind Energy Council and the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) - addressing issues of climate change challenges.

Our dedicated NextGen TV channel features interviews with many of our key presenters and partners.

Our services include

  • consultancy and advice
  • event conceptualisation and production
  • conference and meeting management and support
  • exposition and trade show management and delivery
