 London – Europe’s number one enterprise IT event, IP EXPO Europe, has announced its 2017 showcase to help organisations and individuals looking to innovate and evolve through technology. Now in its 12th year, the event will take place on 4-5 October 2017 at ExCeL London and brings together some of the biggest names, in their respective fields, to tackle the technological issues facing organisations right now.

With six themes under one roof and unrivalled access to experts and technology innovators, IP EXPO Europe 2017 will be co-located with Cyber Security Europe and MACHINA Summit.AI, a new event focusing on AI, IoT and Analytics. This industry leading event is expected to attract a broad audience of enterprise IT professionals and enthusiasts to discuss how to evolve their businesses for a digital future and network with likeminded professionals. This means CTOs, IT directors, technology specialists and business leaders will be able to get a detailed and accurate overview of how the latest game-changing technologies can help develop their businesses into organisations of the future – from digital transformation and data to AI and security.

Bradley Maule-ffinch, EMEA Portfolio Director at IP EXPO Europe, comments: “This year’s IP EXPO Europe is going to be bigger and better than ever. With technology evolving at such a rapid rate, it’s fantastic to bring together the most innovative themes and industry leading experts to discuss the current realities as well as the future possibilities that these technologies offer.

We hope that this year’s keynote and seminar programme enables attendees to take away ideas of what they can bring to their own businesses now and in the future. Whether it be implementing a new cyber security policy, looking at future-proofing their technology, or getting a better understanding of how to use technology to transform their business, the exhibitors and seminar programme are designed to educate and assist. With the addition of Cyber Security Europe and the inaugural MACHINA Summit.AI, attendees will be able to truly get a full picture of what’s possible now and in the future.”

Attendees at this year’s event will have the opportunity to hear from a range of world class influential speakers over the two-day event, focusing on the six themes of Cloud, Cyber Security, Networks & Infrastructure, DevOps, Open Source, and AI, Analytics & IoT. The first to be announced include:

  • Brad Anderson, Corp. VP Enterprise Mobility at Microsoft, who’ll cover the next evolution in mobility
  • Stuart Russell, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC-Berkeley, on the use of AI, its long-term future and its relation to humanity.
  • Comedian Bennett Aaron, who’ll discuss what it’s really like to have your identity stolen
  • Garry Kasparov, Security Ambassador for Avast and former chess world champion, who’ll delve into what it’s like to face off against AI
  • The people hacker, Jenny Radcliffe, who’ll be carrying out a live social engineering hack during the two-day event

Also lined up for this year’s show is a cyber security session to top all others, as James Lyne, Global Head of Security Research at Sophos, Rik Ferguson, Global VP Security Research at Trend Micro, and Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure, debate the biggest cyber security issues of the moment in a panel chaired by Duo’s Principal Security Strategist, Wendy Nather.
