Future Device Technology Seminar

FutureTech: Future Device Technology Seminar

Register here

After the success of our very first ‘Oktobertech‘, we have decided to add another Future Device Technology seminar to the calendar, rebranded as – FutureTech. This next seminar will take place on Wednesday 12th February 2020 at our offices in London.

As media continues to evolve into a more intelligent and personalised form, so does TV. We have a unique opportunity to break the mould that is TV today and re-shape what it means from the viewer’s perspective, not just for tomorrow but for decades to come. To do this, we have to consider the devices that make up the viewing experience.

Please join us at FutureTech as we explore the device technology of the future. You can expect to hear from experts in their respective fields, discuss where the technology is heading. Have a look below to see the agenda for the day.
