LONDON – 18 October 2016 – IP EXPO Europe, Europe’s number one enterprise IT event, is proud to announce a record attendance of 15,512 visitors at this year’s event. Hosting a raft of inspiring presentations, seminars and panel debates, the event featured some of the industry’s leading technological thinkers, entrepreneurs and media personalities.
Now in its 11th year, IP EXPO Europe’s continuing growth is confirmation that the appeal of its winning format is going from strength to strength. With six sub-events under one roof, speakers at this year’s event covered a wide breadth of technology topics. These included the latest developments in cyber security, cloud computing and the intersection of the Internet of Things (IoT), through to robotics and artificial intelligence (AI).
Highlight sessions included keynote talks from Author & Founding Director of Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute, Nick Bostrom; the ‘Father of Java’, James Gosling; the creator of the ‘MySpace worm’ and Independent Security Researcher, Samy Kamkar; and Independent Cyber Security Consultant, Dr Jessica Barker. IP EXPO Europe 2016 also saw lively debates on the future of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in education, as part of a series of sub events held in collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
“The calibre of speakers at this year’s event was simply second to none, with a hugely impressive line-up of significant industry leaders and computing industry pioneers,” commented Bradley Maule-ffinch, IP EXPO Europe’s Director of Strategy. “In bringing together many eminent speakers to present, discuss and debate key topics currently of interest to industry decision makers, IP EXPO Europe has further cemented its reputation as Europe’s number one IT event.
“With an event of this size and significance in such a competitive market, a six per cent year-on-year growth really is a great achievement, and is testament to the passion, hard work, aptitude and tenacity of the entire IP EXPO Europe event team. This year the IP EXPO Event Series, which includes IP EXPO Europe, IP EXPO Manchester and IP EXPO Nordic, has attracted a total of 23,181 attendees to the entire series of European events, a 28 per cent growth in total audience from 2015.
“As we are all aware, it’s not just about the volume of visitors through our doors but also the quality, seniority and engagement of these individuals. We have already received amazing feedback from exhibitors and will continue to analyse our full data sets to understand more about our audience, who they are and how this is changing year on year.”
