5G Realised Summit will look at use cases for 5G across different industry vertical segments.

This event is part of our innovative series of high-level events designed to bring together industry leaders to explore real applications for 5G and how to realise them.

The 5G Realised Summit will be built around utilizing live streaming to allow the largest interested audience possible to access the content. The ‘on stage’ experience will be in line with expectations for the UK’s leading 5G use-case based event, with the exception of more speakers coming in via the interactive virtual event platform. For the exclusive small group onsite, we will be taking into account social distancing and scheduling in small groups without the need for queues and any other form of involuntary close contact. This will include pre-booked, staged access to the demo and exhibition areas.
