Only nine days until ITEC 2017



October 6, 2017 9:01 am

Just nine days to go until this year’s International Technology Enabled Conference in Birmingham on 16/17 October and we are busy finalising the plans for our delegates, exhibitors and presenters.

We have published the shortlists for the Crystal Award and Driving Digital Challenge and we welcome Keith McNeil (NHS Chief Clinical Information Officer) to our extensive list of 19 plenary speakers.

As well as our main stage activities we have a number of breakout sessions that support our overall theme of ‘Putting People First’.

The conference has eight sponsors – Tunstall, Verklizan, CSL, Mobius Networks, Motech, Learning Curve Group, Possum, Keynetics Ltd and around 60 exhibitors – there will be plenty of opportunities during the conference to discuss the wide range of TECS products and service offerings that are available.

In our exhibition area we have some additional zones/stages including:

1 The App Zone – led by ORCHA and its founder Liz Ashall-Payne

The App Zone will provide participants with the opportunity to meet some of the most innovative app developers working in the health and care space, and to test and try their products across a wide number of health and care needs.

More information is available about the two-day App Zone Programme.

2 The Digital Citizen Zone

mHabitat are proudly hosting the TSA Conference’s first Digital Citizen Zone.

People attending the conference will have the chance to think about citizen-participation in designing and developing digital technologies along with citizen-led digital innovation.

There will be an opportunity for participants to meet with and talk to the citizen speakers over the two days through ‘meet and greet’ sessions.

The Citizen Zone is all about conversations that help us develop a shared understanding of digital technologies that are citizen-led, citizen-focused, and encourage citizen participation.

There is an additional hashtag (#TSADigitalCitizen) for this event, so be sure to include it to be featured in the discussion.

You can follow the conference build up on Twitter at #iTECconf17 and we will be running further live discussions on 11 October between 2pm and 8pm.

You can also follow the informative conference news and blogs.

We will be providing more conference updates over the coming days so take the opportunity to join the online discussions at #iTECconf17.
