What to expect from The Blue Door Conference 2019

Registration and full agenda for Blue Door Conference 2019 can be found HERE.

The annual Blue Door Conference is returning in 2019 as part of O2 Live. The day will give opportunities to discuss the topics that spark debate, encourage creative solutions to complex situations, and prepare your business for a future that embraces change.

Last year’s Blue Door Conference saw 700 attendees experience solutions that looked at customer engagement, early 5G use cases, and hands-on demonstrations from 26 vendors.

Guests heard from a mixture of presentations and panel sessions that included 57 speakers. This featured industry experts from private and public organisations, start-ups and scale-ups, as well as plenary sessions from Netflix and Martha Lane Fox, CBE.

The event also encouraged an atmosphere of business networking throughout the day and during the night with a very special intimate gig from Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones.


Due to its popularity, we’re opening the door to even more attendees and encouraging even more networking opportunities with peers from across industries. This includes providing an option to join coordinated tours of the solution areas before the conference starts – giving you insights into the world of smart cities, and what existing and new technologies such as 5G are likely to bring.

We have added more choice to the deep dive sessions available, allowing you to tailor the event to focus on the topics of most interest to you. This includes dedicated time for Q&A with the market and industry panelists.

The day will end with more opportunities for networking opportunities, and entertainment will be provided to help you unwind.

If you’re looking to understand the successful strategies and tactics taken by organisations that balance technology and people needs, want to hear from industry leaders discussing best practice, and want to network with your industry peers, then this is the right event for you and your organisation.

This event is free to attend.
