ConTech 2018 is just four months away. Where are we so far?

Our conference programme is almost complete with just a couple of sessions and keynotes to be finalised. Interest continues to run high and the global conference delegation is growing daily.

Delegates will hear from a range of experts focussing on the world of content and how it is being transformed through data science, A.I. and other emerging technologies, looking at the present and what’s in store.

The programme features an attractive line up of thought-provoking speakers. To see the programme please visit the website www.contechlive.com. Speakers from Google, Twipe, Elsevier, UK Government Digital Services and Wiley, to name a few, will be in attendance on 29 and 30 November, at Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London.

Confirmed delegates include a wide range of content and information professionals from around the world. Content heads, strategists and managers. CTOs, systems architects, data scientists and platform technologists. Publishers, senior librarians, information and engagement specialists. Founders, business leaders, comms and marketing experts are all represented.

ConTech 2018 will be making a series of additional announcements on new event features, confirmed keynotes and other opportunities in the coming weeks, so watch this space.

Clive Snell, MD of ConTech 2018: said 'It’s really exciting working on this new event for information and content people who want to understand how moving towards data-driven content will impact their businesses, operations and the content they create and deliver. 

'If you have a business perspective, the event is about understanding the opportunity and how to take the first steps towards a more data-driven business model and strategy. If you are a content practitioner, the event is about how to migrate towards data-driven publishing - whether that is in creating content, managing content or distributing content.  

'There is also another audience, which is those in the data science community who have begun to specialise in the content area, but I think what makes the event unique is it is about data science and AI opportunities, tools and techniques but through the lens of those working in content.'
