Culture and digital economy minister Ed Vaizey will outline the Government’s latest projections for the UK’s digital future at Connected Britain – a two-day conference and exhibition dedicated to the country’s current state of connectivity.

Taking place at the Jumeirah Carlton Hotel, in London, on Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16, Vaizey will headline the event, which features a packed agenda of key speakers from the service provider and vendor communities, as well as Government bodies, regulators and analysts.

Other leading names confirmed by event organiser Total Telecom include Mike Galvin, Managing Director of Strategy Service and Operations at BT, Broadband Delivery UK CEO Chris Townsend and 02 Telefonica’s Chief Technology Officer Brendan O’Reilly.

“The digital revolution is bringing huge opportunities for the UK,” said Total Telecom’s Managing Director Rob Chambers. “These range from new, more efficient and profitable business models to more effective social services, smart cities and communities inside an ultrafast broadband environment. To realise these opportunities, the UK telecoms industry faces a range of challenges and Connected Britain is the ideal platform for industry leaders to come together and address them.”

Subjects covered during the two-day conference will include Connectivity and the Economy, Technical Futures, Infrastructure Investment, Regulation, Digital Inclusion and Future Cities. As well as conference presentations, the event will include Round Tables and networking opportunities.

“Anyone with an interest – from any aspect – in digital Britain should view this as a must-attend event,” said Chambers. “Apart from the sheer value of the presentations and the chance to take part in the Round Tables, visitors will get the chance to understand the opportunities of Smart Cities and 5G, learn about the regulatory environment and make important new contacts for both their future and the future of the UK.”
