  • (1888PressRelease) November 23, 2012 - Around 300 delegates attended Britannic Technologies' Annual Convergence Summit with the opportunity to listen to thought leaders on the development of the industry, and interact with the technology first hand, gaining an invaluable experience with the view of improving their business function. Notable guests included Sir Terence Matthews, founder and Chairman of Mitel and Wesley Clover and directors from highly successful organisations across the UK ranging from local government, housing and education to professional services, finance and manufacturing industries.

    The summit reviewed today's rapidly evolving communications marketplace focussing on cloud services, virtualisation, centralisation and Next Generation Networks. Key themes delivered from top industry minds from Avaya, Microsoft, Cisco, Mitel, Polycom and Britannic themselves, centred around the idea of an ever increasingly connected world incorporating social media and an increasingly mobile workforce, and offered some insight into how best to deal with the rising challenges to businesses.

    Britannic prides itself on its symbiotic relationship with its partners, delivering tailor-made solutions picked from among the best solutions in the industry. This is the perfect event to showcase these solutions, allowing delegates a chance to see a range of different vendors' offerings, and get a true idea for the scale of technology that can be implemented to deliver instant value to any business.

    "We want the event to be informative, exhilarating, and above all else enjoyable. We aim to attract top industry experts to not only speak, but also come and be informed and share their experience with others. The event is a huge success because of this networking capacity." Jonathan Sharp, Sales and Marketing Director, Britannic Technologies.

    In holding the Convergence Summit at Wembley, Britannic carried on the tradition of taking this event to spectacular venues, with previous locations such as Silverstone, Twickenham, and the BT Tower.

    The schedule for this year included a full morning programme of speeches, an exhilarating opening performance from football freestylers, brunch, lunch, drinks, competitions, a Wembley tour and an exhibition showing off the portfolio of Britannic's partners.
