The world leading IoT Tech Expo is returning to Olympia London 17-18th March 2020 and is bringing together 9000 technology enthusiasts to explore the entire technology enterprise eco-system of IoT, Blockchain, AI & Big Data, Cyber Security & Cloud, as well as the newest addition; 5G. Each event will showcase the next generation technologies and strategies for the future by through expert case studies from industry leaders and 300+ exhibitors who will demonstrate the latest technology.

We are all aware that the percentage of women working within these technology-based industries is significantly lower than men and has been for as long as we can remember. In education, IT and technology was deemed a heavily male dominated subject and it’s safe to say from there it has been an uphill battle for women to join the ‘boys club’.

‘We’re using the power of intelligent digital to see beyond the gender gap, to a world where women can reimagine our future’ (PwC 2020). Closing the gender gap and increasing diversity benefits businesses enormously in both their economic and social environments. Diversity in any creative space is imperative for development and therefore, at the Tech Expo, we are delighted that our agenda will feature some of the leading women in these sectors:
