In this conference we set out the perspective of how technology is impacting the societal aspects of (i) the individual and (ii) the markets of large enterprises. Domain specialists provide examples of a number of use cases and cover health care, telecoms, IoT, smart cities as well as government policy making. Subject experts/leaders will consider/debate what are the implications of these impending changes and evolutions. A special feature is an invited session on Quantum Computing and its impact on finance and cybersecurity.

This promises to be a lively and entertaining event, with participation of around 80 technically minded, top level executives from various sectors, keen to find out where the emerging and disruptive technologies are leading us, and to put questions and viewpoints to the panels. Our conference speakers and delegates frequently tell us that they value the in-depth, technical presentations as a real opportunity to exchange views and increase their knowledge.


Many emerging technologies are set to impact every aspect of business. Find out insights and strategies from leading thinkers and practitioners for successfully embracing these technologies to improve the enterprise and the home.

Code of Conduct & Diversity

UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity

We at UNICOM strive to be a leading provider of knowledge to the business community and to engage the global business community as a specialised provider of knowledge. We strive to do this maintaining a culture of co-operation, commitment and trust. We want every UNICOM conference and training day to be a safe and productive environment for everyone – a place to share research and innovation and to build professional networks. To that end, we will enforce a code of conduct throughout all our events. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion. We do not tolerate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

Please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff.

Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.
