About the event

ConTech Forum will explore how content is being transformed through data science, AI and other emerging technologies.  Delegates will get practical advice and learn from content pioneers embracing this new technology.  Whether you are making decisions about strategic people and technological investments, looking to explore how data technologies can transform your business or delivering data driven content projects and products – you’ll find the answers here.

The format of this event offers a unique opportunity to get up to date with all the burning issues and challenges that were discussed at ConTech 2018 or have happened since.   Delegates of ConTech Forum will also be able to contribute to and shape the ConTech 2019 programme.
