Description

Connexin Live - Building Smarter Cities is set to become one of the UK's premier smart technology events. Held at the new Bonus Arena in Hull from 4pm on Thursday 4th October 2018.

At certain moments during our evolution, humankind has made significant leaps forward - electrification of our streets and buildings, the discovery of penicillin, taking the first steps on the surface of the moon, to name a few...

Then the internet arrived, transforming the way we learn, work, shop and connect with each other.

With cheaper chipsets, smarter applications, better batteries and new ways to connect, everything around us from our TVs to our Cars are becoming connected and “smarter” giving birth to the Internet of Things.


The Internet of Things connects everyday objects enabling people to make more informed decisions, have greater control over their environment and live a better quality of life. Imagine the possibilities of this on a city wide scale.

Connexin Live is a unique opportunity for delegates to broaden their horizons and learn more about the real improvements in lifestyle that smart technology can enable.

Connexin Live - Building Smarter Cities will bring together experts from leading businesses, local government, universities and development organisations to make connections, explore synergies and learn from one another.

The emphasis will be on technologies enabling the Internet of Things in the real world, such as LoRaWAN. Expert speakers will use demonstrations and case studies to show how smart technologies are boosting local economies and enhancing lives.


Our confirmed keynote speakers as:

Arvind Satyam, Global Managing Director for Smart Cities at Cisco

Furqan Alamgir, CEO & Founder of Connexin

Andy Burton, Head of City Streetscene at Hull City Council

Jenny Nelson, Digital Programme Manager at Newcastle City Council

John Hemingway, Director of ICT at The University of Hull

Tom Warburton, Director of Place at Newcastle City Council
