Virtual To Live in London: In the beginning of this year, the organizers behind the Dublin Tech Summit had announced that they were launching a sister summit – London Tech Summit in December 2021. Their plans were to host it as a virtual event focused on the global tech scene, primarily for a London-based audience. But after recently surveying their attendees, they discovered that very few people wanted to attend another virtual event. After a year and a half of virtual happenings the consensus was to wait until 2022 and hold the event live and in-person. While the conference organizers are still determining when the conference will be held, they plan to cover topics such as the Fintech ecosystem, Big Data & Sustainability, Disruptors & Trailblazers, emerging tech and  AI/Machine Learning.

Earth to Enterprises: As space exploration drives down the cost of satellite-collected information, enterprises are learning new ways to monitor market conditions, suppliers, competitors, and even their customers, all to impact the bottom line. To meet the demands of this growing “space” (see what we did there?), events producer TMC is adding a new program to its TechSuperShow portfolio: Earth Intelligence World, running 8-11 February in Miami. The Earth Intelligence World agenda will focus on topics that are important to businesses looking to bypass the hype of space tourism and reusable rockets to embrace the bounty of data being generated by commercial satellites. Real-world case study examples in just about every industry will be covered.

Speaking Opportunity: Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference will return to Myrtle Beach, SC from 9 – 12 May 2022. The event provides a unique education experience that blends together the digital forensics and cybersecurity industries for collaboration between government and private sectors. The conference managers are looking for topic suggestions across one of their four tracks: Audit/Risk Management; Forensics; Information Security; Investigations. If you have an idea that you would like to present on stage next year, submit here before their 30 November deadline.   

Lunchtime Learning: The WSJ Global Food Forum brings together an influential audience of senior executives and experts from across the food industry and agricultural economy. During the June 2021 conference, they discussed sustainability across the sector, from seed research to farming practices to packaging to the food we eat.
