Other corporate representatives include Rachel Hobson, head of events for BAE Systems Applied Intelligence and Karen Sawyer, head of group events at Lloyds Banking Group.

In addition to learning about the latest tech trends, liaising with key suppliers and getting advice from corporate event planners, delegates will have the opportunity to enjoy rollercoasters, a BBQ, gala dinner and an entertainment programme including a driving experience at Mercedes-Benz World.
