How do we adopt already existing tech and unleash its potential in new applications? How do investors look at the next generation of technological innovation and how can they judge what technologies will be the most dominant and influential in the future?

In this year’s Tech Forum we explore the future tech landscape as we bring together start-ups, SMEs, large corporations and investors to discuss the applications of blockchain, AI, AR/VR and other technologies, and what makes them successful.

What are the main barriers for start-ups to adopt existing tech and unleash its potential in new applications? What made the  the forerunners within their industries and how do they stay relevant after that big break? How do the investors foresee the potential of future innovations and how do they decide what to invest in?

Speakers from the realms of investment, SME's, large corporations, and start-ups will give different perspectives into new and existing technologies and look to the future.
