As the CEO of Connected Places Catapult, I am inspired by the passion, dedication, and ingenuity demonstrated by our global community of partners, stakeholders, and attendees. Your unwavering commitment to the transformative vision of connected places is truly remarkable, and it is through collaborative efforts like those showcased at the Summit that we are able to drive positive change and innovation at scale.

We saw over 850 delegates attended in-person (a sell-out), and over 1,000 joined us online. We welcomed over 220 speakers from across a variety of sectors, all here to share their stories and ideas.

I personally loved the thought-provoking discussions, insightful presentations, and impactful collaborations that took place during the two days. 

I would like to express a special thank you to our sponsors, exhibitors, and partners for their generous support and collaboration. This event would not have been possible without them. I would also like to thank the team at Connected Places Catapult for their hard work and dedication in organising this event and ensuring its success.

Thank you once again for your participation, your contributions, and your commitment.
I look forward to continuing our journey together and shaping the future of connected places.

Warm regards,
Erika Lewis, CEO, Connected Places Catapult
