Get In: TechCentral at the Party Conferences

Sponsored post.

tc-x-480
With the pace of dramatic change and innovation in the world of technology – from driverless cars to wearable tech – public policy in the UK has lagged behind technological advances. In many respects this is due to the technology industry being more distant from politics in comparison to other public policy concerns like health and transport. Despite Britain having a large and vibrant technologically advanced economy.

Key public policy issues have in the past all enjoyed dedicated zones at the party conferences, with delegates and politicians flocking to hear about the latest advances and discuss hot issues. It’s long overdue that there was such a public forum to bridge the gap between the tech world and the political world. That new forum is TechCentral – a dedicated technology space within the secure zones at Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat party conferences, which will be attended by thousands of delegates.

It is unsurprising, given the importance of this year’s conferences ahead of next year’s general election, that TechCentral has secured partnerships with Facebook, Microsoft, EE, and TalkTalk. For example Microsoft will be offering sessions about coding and Facebook will be giving social media training for candidates using blazing fast 4G and wi-fi from EE. Afterwards Talk Talk will have you singing the night away with their X-Factor contest. Many other organisations will also be holding events in the TechCentral venue.

A small number of opportunities for technology related organisations to hold their fringe sessions within TechCentral are still available. For more information about TechCentral, including partnership opportunities, pricing and the current agenda for each party conference, visit TechCentral or for more info email andrew@techcentral.org.uk.

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
