A hotbed of innovation close to home: unveiling emerging Europe

The Innotech Summit: Destination UK has been developed to create partnerships between emerging European service providers with UK IT and sourcing leaders.

Through an exciting and interactive agenda, you will focus on learning, and obtaining in-depth knowledge of the latest trends, opportunities and threats facing business and its leaders during this exciting phase of transformation. You will also have a unique opportunity to extend your network through meeting some of the industry’s leading operators and practitioners.

The summit is targeted to UK C-level executives, heads of procurement, strategic sourcing & other IT-enabled business services.

  • We have been so busy following up on all the meetings with potential clients we met at the Nordics InnoTech that our post-event review call with you will have to wait for a week or two!

  • A few weeks after the 2018 Nordics InnoTech, one of the providers is in advanced discussions with a high-profile member of ours. Having concrete deals from an event in such a short time is very much unheard of!

  • The event really opened our eyes to new opportunities and ways of work and connected us to relevant people and technology providers from the emerging Europe region who can help us realise them.

  • I got a lot of knowledge about the UK market and the perception it has of Ukraine. The event was strongly relevant for us to increase our ability to obtain more business and strengthen our cooperation with clients in the market.

Venue

European Bank for Reconstruction and Development
One Exchange Square, London EC2A 2JN, United Kingdom

The EBRD has two entrances, both with a reception area. However we are asking that you report to the main entrance which is Exchange Square upon your arrival.

The nearest underground (tube) and main line station is Liverpool Street Station. On exiting the Station via the Bishopsgate exit, turn left onto Bishopsgate, and the Bank is an approximate three minute walk on the left-hand side of the road.
