They always are. More questionable than the price is the timing. Why is this not happening at BETT next week instead?
And where are the government agencies that work in this area? Future lab (formerly part of NESTA) have been pushing this agenda for years and always have a stand, and usually some speakers, at BETT. They even got EA involved. Why are we not seeing a representative from them on the speakers list?
Why is the conference partner a tourism body rather than an agency in this area?
If this is about schools, universities and healthcare why are the ministry of defence involved? why is it the shadow culture minister and not health or education that’s speaking?
I see a lot of impressive resumes on the advisory group, but not speaking at the conference.
To many grey areas for me to cough up for this one I think.
