CW International Conference: Connecting Generations

The ninth CW International Conference (CWIC) is an established annual event within the tech thought leadership calendar, bringing together C-suite business leaders, entrepreneurs, start-ups and engineers. It is curated by CW members and industry peers, ensuring that relevant and emerging topics are always addressed.

The overall aim of the conference is to set new paths for the industry by debating controversial technology and business issues. This provides an opportunity for busy professionals to reflect upon and renew strategic horizons taking on board new ideas, new challenges, and making new connections.

The Theme – Connecting Generations
The theme of this year's conference is ‘Connecting Generations’. Each generation, from post-millennials to baby boomers and beyond, is adopting and driving the development of wireless applications in their own way. Can new generations of technology that we foresee meet these dynamics or are different approaches needed now?

The millennials are quick to adopt services offered in the sharing economy such as mobility-as-a-service. The next "Generation z" is the mobile-on-TV generation, where second screen and novel user interfaces are common place; and the baby boomer’s adoption of mobile and wireless is creating new opportunities in remote healthcare and medical segments. IoT promises to connect everything to everybody, as smart cities evolve to become liveable cities, where quality of life and security are core to the digital transformation. Can transformational forces in businesses that cater for a workforce that is retiring later, the growth in the mobile workforce, and new digital practices, be turned to competitive advantage through digital transformation? How can digital enable larger older businesses to work effectively with the new generation of entrepreneurial startups? You will learn through thought leading speakers and networking with your peers how you can harness the transformational forces and dynamics of the generations to achieve competitive advantage. Join CW for their annual conference, where the vision of an entrepreneurial society will become tangible and discover that in the connected world the generations have far more in common than that which divides them.
