Highlights from the Connected Places Summit – 2024

Last week was a big one for the Connected Places Catapult. On the 20/21 March we hosted our first ever Connected Places Summit, in the heart of the City of London.

It was a big one because even though we run multiple events throughout the year, this was the first time we’ve run a 2-day Summit which brought together all of our flagship projects under one roof. But it also included a keynote programme with some of the most influential thinkers and leaders from across government, business and academia.

Over the two days had 220 speakers, 27 companies exhibiting, 30 supporting partners, and 850 people joined us in person and 1000 people joined us online.

We are also very grateful to all of our partners, including of course Innovate UK, our strategic partner for the Summit, Department for Transport, and our headline partner, DNV.

Keynote talks and other sessions will soon be available on the Summit website, and you can also register now to find out all about our plans for our next Summit on 2025!
