In its 8th year, the 2016 Future of Wireless International Conference turned its attention to the boardroom and explored how industry leaders are planning to transform and build new business models to harness a world with ubiquitous wireless. The conference focussed on how wireless technology is pushing the boundaries across a number of industry segments.

Running alongside London’s showcase Tech Week event on 21 and 22 June, the conference focussed on ‘The Future Connected World’, and brought together over 400 entrepreneurs and engineers from around the world, together with decision makers to share their visions and enabling technologies for new markets, industries and business models. The event was organised by CW (Cambridge Wireless) – the leading international community for companies involved in the research, development and application of wireless and mobile technologies.

As well as keynote sessions, the conference included vertical industry streams covering automotive, retail, industrial IoT, utilities, fintech, entertainment and healthcare. Other activities included the Innovation Test Labs, live Smart Building sensor and data simulations, the entrepreneur and young leaders showcase, as well as international business matchmaking. The conference concluded with the ‘Cambridge Debate’ chaired by journalist and broadcaster Rory Cellan-Jones.
