News such as major contract wins and innovative project starts should be sent for consideration for publication by the news team

UKA Live

Our bespoke UKA Live programmes focus on a specific key topic in the news and feature a technology supplier, their customers and sector thought leaders for an in-depth live discussion on the issue in hand, the pain points the sector faces in dealing with this, whilst exploring strategies and technologies that can surmount them. The aim is to showcase success and to share the learnings with the wider sector.
