As Brexit Drives Demand for Increased Productivity, Collaboration and Connectivity


7 February 2017, London – UC EXPO, Europe’s largest unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) event, today announces that it is open for business. Thought leaders will be sharing their insight into the evolving modern workplace and how we can expect to work in the future. Registration is now open for the event which will take place on 17-18 May 2017 at ExCeL London.

Bradley Maule-ffinch, Director of Strategy for UC EXPO, says: “Rarely before in recent history have the issues of collaboration, connectivity and productivity seemed so critical to the future of UK businesses. Socio-political developments such as Brexit and its uncertain economic impact, has meant that for many organisations a unified communications strategy has gone from ‘nice to have’ to business critical. Addressing issues such as remote working, enabling global collaboration between teams and increasing productivity are vital to future-proofing the UK’s place on the world business stage, and for many to the continued success of their organisation.

UC EXPO 2017 brings together some of the world leading influencers and brands to discuss the major challenges and issues involved with implementing a truly unified communications strategy, whilst also sharing insights, experiences and success stories.

This year’s speaker line-up includes Noam Fine, Managing Director of iam+, who will explore the intersection of AI and VoIP, accompanied by AI assistant AneedA. Other notable speakers include Barak Regev, Director, Cloud Platform, EMEA, Google; VMWare Business Solutions Strategist & CTO Ambassador, Charles Barratt; Paige O’Neill, CMO, Prysm; Dean Bubley, Founder of technology analyst and consulting firm Disruptive Analysis and Dave Macfarlane, Manging Director, Gamma Network Solutions.


In addition, 2017 also sees the launch of new technology areas into the event program. Designed to appeal to senior ICT decision makers who are tasked with implementing the very latest UC & C technologies, this will include:
