Connexin Live 2019 – The Power of Data

Home-grown Smart City Operator, Connexin has unveiled plans for a major technology event at the Bonus Arena in Hull on the 1stOctober 2019 at 5pm.

Connexin Live 2019 will bring together experts from leading businesses, local government, universities and utilities to make connections, explore synergies and learn from one another.

True to its mission of “enriching people’s lives through sustainable innovation and the unique power of the internet”, Connexin Live 2019 will focus on the “Power of Data”. Expert speakers from across the globe will lead deep-dive discussions and share learning with a focus on:

  • How Data in the water industry is reducing leaks and providing new ways to manage flooding.
  • How information about the quality of air around us can help save lives.
  • How Data from CCTV can be used to manage antisocial behaviour, manage road congestion and much more.
  • How Data is driving efficiency through new ways to plan and utilise a University campus. 

Connexin is committed to holding its Connexin Live conference event annually. Last year’s Live event brought guests from more than 27 different countries into the city and included guest speakers from organisations including; Hull City Council, Cisco, Newcastle City Council, Rradar, Hull University and the CCG.

This year, Connexin plan on taking the event to a whole new level, and have partnered with the Tech Expo Humber to bring in over 5000 guests during the course of the 2-day tech extravaganza.

Furqan Alamgir Connexin CEO explains the rationale behind the decision; “Outside of London the Humber has the fastest growing digital sector in the UK. By working together, Connexin Live and Tech Expo will showcase how the Humber is beginning to emerge as the epicentre of future digital technologies.”

Confirmed event line up and speakers are set to be announced within the coming days, however the company promises that the event this year is expected to be “much larger” and will demonstrate some “key outcomes” and learnings.

Antonio Tombane, Founder of Tech Expo Humber and MD of GBIT Recruitment Limited, the organisation behind Tech Expo Humber Commented;

“We are excited that Connexin is bringing Connexin Live 2019 to Tech Expo Humber because we believe our vision and that of Connexin is the same, to put the Humber on the map for tech. Connexin Live 2018 was such a success, bringing tech companies from around the country and internationally to Hull. We enjoyed the insights and great speakers talking about smart cities and IoT. We are excited to be partnering with Connexin Live 2019 and believe this will be the biggest tech event yet and will benefit our region massively.”
