British Business Embassy days - ICT summit

The ICT Summit held on 3 August 2012 enabled technology leaders from across the world to discuss opportunities in the UK and global technology trends.

Speakers included business leaders from leading technology companies such as BT, Intel, Thomson Reuters, ARM, Samsung Electronic UK and Zeebox.

The ICT Summit Summary summarises speakers’ views on:

  • The qualities that make the UK a great place for ICT, such as government support and light administration, the innovative climate and quality of universities, the passionate workforce and sophisticated consumers;

  • Trends enabled by technology, from the fusion of product and technology, to the use of technology in driving the creativity process; from the UK’s leading position in online sales, to the growth of the business-to-business marketing for technology;
  • Ways in which technology is both being made easier to use and making life easier – from the greening of energy usage, to growing convergence between technology devices;
  • Opportunities created for social media and new marketing, from the opportunities for “tweet breaks” during TV advertisements, when consumers check their phones; to the speed of fibre roll out;
  • The need for television to be all about interaction – 56-inch smart phones.

The UK is Europe’s leading market for software and IT services with a market value of €61 billion in 2011.
