Thursday 19th October, 1.30pm - 5.30pm - TalkTalk Head Office, Soapworks, Ordsall Lane, Salford, M5 3TT
After 4 years we are pleased to announce the return of our ISPA Conference, bringing together senior industry leaders, government representatives and regulators to discuss some of the most critical topics currently facing the UK's internet sector. This year the event is heading North, taking place at the TalkTalk Head Offices in Salford (accessible by tram from Manchester Piccadilly) and will welcome members from across the UK to join for an afternoon of interesting discussions and networking over refreshments provided.
The event will focus on 'Overcoming the obstacles to ensure gigabit broadband is delivered to all citizens' and will feature a keynote speech from a senior government representative (to be announced) and two in-depth panel discussions:
Panel Session: Barriers to take up - how can industry challenge them?
In this panel session, ISPA will bring together key industry leaders and government representatives to establish what the key factors are prohibiting take-up of gigabit broadband and what can be done to overcome these current barriers - covering awareness, emerging technologies, broader industry messaging strategies and government incentives.
Panel Session: What should be the role of industry in a cost of living crisis?
This panel will have an in-depth discussion about the role of industry given the current macroeconomic environment. With providers exploring different ways of providing support to those most affected by the current crisis, the panel will explore what the role of industry should be, the messaging around the work we undertake to tackle the issue and whether there is enough support from government.
