At SMW London we will explore the theme through more than 50 sessions, including: mainstage talks, interviews, panel sessions and workshops.
Hosted at BFI Southbank, the event will feature two stages, including a 500 person theatre and a second stage that seats 125, co-working lounges, speaker AMA lounge, VR showcase, technology vendors, complimentary coffee, snacks and lunch options. Networking Happy Hours will conclude each of the first three days: Tuesday – Thursday.
