This popular gathering is officially titled UCX Europe 2023, and is being held as a platform to discuss and celebrate ‘Enterprise IT and AI.’ One vital topic under the microscope is: Do recent advancements in technology pose more questions than answers?

Those who attend can listen to words of wisdom from some of the industry’s most insightful minds. The event is specially tailored to combine Digital Transformation EXPO Europe(DTX) (the home of digital transformation), with UC EXPO (UCX), which leads the way in customer and workplace technology.

The event takes place during an era when IT teams and business leaders are starting to realise the impact of emerging technologies. Therefore, the theme of this year’s show is called: ‘Preparing for the next realm’
