GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong

I recently visited Hong Kong and China as a guest of the GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong and its principal partner HSBC UK.

The GREAT Festival of Innovation is organised by UK Department for International Trade, and designed to showcase the best of British talent – across business, fashion, media and the arts – and to build further bridges between the UK, Hong Kong and China.

While I was there I hosted panel sessions and podcasts for HSBC UK on key themes around technology and innovation in the Silicon Delta region, and opportunities for growing international trade.

I also visited Shenzhen, China, to speak with technology firms including DJI – a flyaway success with drones and camera gimbal tech – and the robotics firm that urges us to ‘Dream with Robots’, UBTECH.

It was an insightful week, and I’m very grateful to my hosts HSBC UK and the Sideshow team for the invitation, as well as to everyone I spoke with in the podcasts and panel sessions.

London Tech Week 2018: Where 5G, AI and Blockchain Converge

London Tech Week is the UK capital’s annual celebration of technology and innovation.

Once again, I’m hosting the online broadcasts for LTW’s flagship event, TechXLR8, live every day from 9am until 6pm.

We’ll be interviewing tech industry movers and shakers from around the world to learn how 5G, AI, blockchain – even space tech – will converge to have a profound impact on business and society in the next two to three years.

I’ll be speaking with Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Matt Hancock; with leaders from Oracle, Microsoft and Nokia, also with the only VC investing solely in space tech, Seraphim Capital.

London Tech Week is also a great platform for start-ups, and we’ll be covering as many as we can, including the Project Kairos start-up pitch-off competition at TechXLR8 on Thursday.

Here’s one of my favourite reports from last year’s London Tech Week, but do look out for this year’s #LTW coverage at TechXLR8 and London Tech Week.

MWC 2018 with Mobile World Live TV

This week I’m at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona reporting for Mobile World Live TV.

David McClelland reporting for Mobile World Live at MWCMobile World Congress is where the mobile industry meets. Each spring, over 100,000 visitors swarm into Barcelona to get a first look at the technologies that will feature in our pockets, homes, offices, cars and cities in the coming months.

Mobile World Live TV is the official broadcast channel of MWC, playing on over 100 screens around the Fira, live on the web and to tens of thousands of hotel rooms across the city.

Each day I’ll be hunting down the best start-up stories from in and around 4YFN at Mobile World Congress for my very own 60-minute show on the channel.

What is 4YFN?

Connecting start-ups from around the world, 4 Years From Now is where the firms and technologies we expect to see maturing in, let’s say, 4 Years From Now showcase themselves, speak to investors and network with others who can help take them to the next stage.
