This two-day physical conference and exhibition is being curated with the express purpose of demonstrating the benefits emerging from the UK’s 5G Testbeds & Trials Programme, and to matchmake with investment and partnership opportunities to accelerate the move to market adoption.
The event is targeted at senior stakeholders from the investment community, government, industry and the public sector, from the UK and across the globe. We anticipate a number of overseas delegations. Our aim is to help the audience understand emerging use cases for 5G that are ready, or approaching readiness, for the market, and how together we can navigate a path to scale across different market sectors and geographical regions over the next five years. The focus is less on what good work has been performed, and much more on what stakeholders and beneficiaries can gain from all the good work that has been undertaken. We will also focus on the telecoms supply chain diversification agenda.
The conference and exhibition are designed to complement the individual showcase events that each project may be undertaking. By bringing the full programme together with an influential audience, we can explore the commercialisation opportunities for the companies and organisations involved in the programme, as well as celebrating the programme’s full impact. We want to show how the conversation can move from innovation and the R&D stage to the early adopter market stage, ie: moving from use cases to business cases.
Further details are in progress but you can read more in the event overview document which can be found here.
