‘Having these opportunities at the show, where companies and suppliers can share learning is a great way to understand what’s new in the industry.’

Head of Technology, Spotlight

Establish your AI Advantage

In 2019, Big Data & AI World saw a staggering 51% year on year increase in attendees! In total, 21,097 data, AI and IT professionals attended our 7 co-located UK technology events.

Big Data & AI World 2019 was a record-breaking event, which welcomed 763 expert speakers and 526 technology suppliers to London’s ExCeL. 

Following demand for a dedicated AI conference series at the event, we are launching AI in Finance and AI in Marketing. The series will feature reactive content to highly targeted audiences.

The theme for this year is Establish Your AI Advantage. Clearly now is the time to adopt AI in order to gain a competitive advantage.

We believe that 2020 will see a step change in AI adoption. The AI conference series will focus on current use cases with a clear ROI and analysis of the immediate innovation horizon.

If there is one event where you can raise profile, build out your network and generate high quality leads, with the entire buying team present, this is it!

We look forward to welcoming you and your team to the AI conference series at Big Data & AI World 2020!

Presenting our new streams for 2020:

  • Applications of deep learning
  • CX and immersive tech
  • Enterprise AI and in-house skills
  • Augmented and predictive analytics

‘A great place to Interact and meet potential prospects and existing clients.’

“Everyone who comes to this event has got an appetite to learn.”

"I come here to gain knowledge. I particularly love the topics in the Keynote Theatre – current trends are discussed and they’re so interesting! I have recommended that my colleagues all attend! In fact, two are attending tomorrow!"
Associate Director, Macquarie Group

"I have taken away some great ideas from what I have seen so far! This has been a great opportunity for me to see new people/products that are out there. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year."

  • "The show has been good. There’s been a lot of people, a lot of attendance. People passing by; I kind of like the idea of having different types of businesses like IoT, Security and Big Data, having a nice mix of things. I get the chance to talk to some people that have a complete different perspective.”
    Principal Sales Engineer - Maria DB
  • “We’ve been on exhibition duty the whole time. It’s been that busy. I has a box of business cards when I arrived, 500, and all gone, every single one is gone. Really engaging. “It’s our second time at the show, we did it last year. Definitely had to do it again this year, and it’s been a resounding success, really really good. I would suggest that anybody that is entering this market space, look at the BDW show, not only form a view point of exhibiting, but also presenting. You have to do the two together to make it worthwhile."
    Sales Director, UK – Splash BI
  • “It is the first year we exhibit and I find the event super interesting. We gave a talk, which was very well attended and afterwards we had very good discussions. I would say the event was innovative and offers good opportunities to network.”
    Marketing Manager - Oracle
  • “This is our second time participating in Big Data World in Singapore and we’ve seen a lot of traffic over the two days. The conversations in the big data community around machine learning is a lot more mature here. Not only the delegates are interested in big data, they are also keen to learn more about data science, artificial intelligence and internet of things.”
    Regional Sales Director - Qubole Inc.
  • "Pivigo has participated in many events in the UK & Europe over the last 12 months and Big Data World was by far the best of them all. The event was a huge success delivering a ROI, prompting us to participate in Big Data World in Germany and London next year."
    Marketing & Communications Manager - Pivigo
  • "I have taken away some great ideas from Big Data World! I have talked with some great suppliers which was my main reason for attending – to connect and network with people in the industry. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year! "
    Head of Data Science - Barclays (Visitor)
  • "Cloud Expo Europe & Data Centre World located alongside Big Data World added huge value to my experience at the event as it made me think about the different ways of relating to data & making me question things which I don’t usually think about from a data point of view in my every day work life. Overall, I liked the range, scope & diversity of the event and I will definitely recommend the rest of the Sky team attend alongside myself in 2019."
    Data Scientist - Sky (Visitor)
  • "I’m here to learn about all emerging technologies, get an insight into the developments in the technology world. I think around Cloud and Machine Learning and AI are all big areas to cover so I think being able to get high level insights from the presentation available is important. I will be coming back next year as well."
