Global data leaders go virtual at UK’s largest event for data

Speakers at the virtual event include IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Starling Bank, HSBC, and AWS.

On 23rd and 24th September, the UK’s largest event for data, Big Data LDN (London) will take place, entirely online. Global data leaders will gather virtually for the first time ever to allow visitors, speakers and exhibitors to remotely explore the new data frontier. 

Since launching in 2016 (previously held at Olympia London) the event has rapidly grown in popularity from 3,000 delegates in 2016 to over 9,000 in 2019, with 130 exhibitors and 150 speakers last year alone. 

This year’s event will be held via Big Data LDN’s online platform, giving global delegates access to watch live demos, video chat and hear from expert speakers, in a comprehensive conference programme. Speakers will share real-world, customer insights from the frontline and in-depth knowledge into key data topics including privacy, governance and leading technology trends such as AI, BI and analytics. 

Big Data LDN’s brand new online platform will allow delegates to:

  • Learn from global data leaders including IBM, Oracle and Microsoft from the comfort of their own home.
  • Attend virtual seminars and network with speakers, peers and exhibitors all in one place from anywhere in the world.
  • Save their seat, plan ahead of time and personalise their own virtual seminar agenda.

Bill Hammond, Big Data LDN Event Director commented, Many UK and global businesses are struggling to navigate current challenges in data quality, skills gaps and ever-increasing privacy issues and regulation. Dealing with these existing road blocks, all while adjusting to the ‘new normal’ and the first UK recession in 11 years, is no easy task.”

“Now more than ever it is vital that UK businesses build a bright data future. Big Data LDN promotes the conversation between global data leaders and businesses looking for a steer in the right direction. This year, our platform’s virtual tools will continue to give delegates the opportunity to hear from industry leaders, network with fellow data experts and learn more about innovative technologies from exhibitors.”
