More high-profile speakers are due to be announced ahead of the event.

Furqan Alamgir, Co-Founder and CEO at Connexin said, “Digital programmable infrastructure is revolutionising how we live both in the UK and beyond. This is why it’s more important than ever that we join organisations together to share our success stories and explore ideas to ensure we continue to evolve technology for the betterment of our communities.

“We are excited to host our third Connexin Live event in our home city of Hull, inviting a whole range of organisations and leaders from across technology, local government, business and enterprise and as a local company, we are passionate about giving back to our local region.”
