DATA PROTECTION WORLD FORUM LTD – PRIVSEC
PrivSec Conference London welcomed over 2,000 delegates to the QEII Conference Centre, Westminster, London on 4th & 5th February 2020.
The conference addressed the challenges and issues data protection, privacy, security and governance professionals around the globe are facing day-to-day.
PrivSec was born due to two of any organisation’s most important functions – privacy and security – working in silos. While on paper, privacy and security go hand in hand, our research had shown that in many organisations, communication between these two departments was poor or negligible.
PrivSec set out to achieve bringing these two departments closer together, while including governance professionals in the conversation.
PrivSec brings together subject matter experts from both sides, and develops an agenda which addresses the most pressing issues and challenges that professionals within the space are facing on a daily basis.
The target of the conference was to give professionals the opportunity to access actionable and practical advice and guidance that they can implement in their own day-to-day roles, while also outlining the route to bringing data protection, privacy, security and governance closer together.
PrivSec Conferences will continue to bring data protection, privacy, security and governance closer together through their global series.
DEZEEN – DEZEEN DAY

DIGITAL PROCUREMENT WORLD – DIGITAL PROCUREMENT WORLD 2019
New conferences spring up all the time. But how many of them surpass every goal, exceed every expectation, and garner industry acclaim after just the first year?
Remarkably, that is exactly what Matthias Gutzmann achieved with the inaugural Digital Procurement World Conference in 2019 (DPW2019).
DPW2019, a brand new conference within an established sector, took place in September, 2019. The event attracted 431 industry leaders from 33 countries and was dubbed “the best new procurement event in years”.
Recognising the need for more collaboration in order to harness the potential of new digital technology, DPW targets a diverse audience of procurement professionals, business leaders, suppliers, startups, data scientists, UX/UI designer, developers, and investors. No other procurement conference brings this variety of people together.
Innovative conference features include an award-winning networking and matchmaking app to enable delegates to make meaningful business connections; a hackathon to challenge the status quo and solve the industry’s challenges in new and innovative ways; and DEMO, a live pitch to showcase emerging technology
