Biggest Ever IP EXPO Draws to a Close

- Record number of visitors, 260 seminars and 240 exhibitors -

IP EXPO, 18 October 2012: More industry leaders and professionals than ever before flocked to IP EXPO to share and learn about the latest and greatest solutions for business IT.

The event's closing day saw a live mobile hack by Oracle, NEC demonstrating elite facial recognition and a joint keynote from SEGA Europe and VMware about how the Cloud is transforming businesses and the online gaming industry.

Inspiring delegates from the outset was ARM Holdings CEO Warren East, whose opening keynote focused on how the mobile market ecosystem has grown and evolved in ways unimaginable several years ago, reshaping both the consumer and enterprise space.

The enabling technologies offered by the mobile communications market are redefining ways of working," said East. "Open business models are allowing greater collaboration and partnerships to drive innovation across the board. This is increasingly providing new opportunities to meet business demands in an era of disruptive trends."

The theme of Security had a strong grip on attendees with a keynote from Bromium's CTO and Co-Founder, Simon Crosby, which examined dealing with risks in an increasingly consumerised environment and the need for trustworthy systems.

A fascinating insight into how governments are opening up the information held on citizens was presented by Home Office consultant and FlyingBinary CEO, Jacqui Taylor, in the event's closing keynote.

Elsewhere, Kaspersky Lab showcased its award winning anti-malware solution for virtualized infrastructures, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization, as it continues to expand beyond the traditional security arena.

DiskShred gave a physical demonstration of security by completely destroying old hard drives, to stop them from falling into the wrong hands, using its shredding solution.

Among those demonstrating new products in the exhibition hall was Fujitsu, which gave attendees a hands-on experience of its STYLISTIC Q702 tablet, reshaping the way organisations approach IT networking and infrastructure.

A lively panel debate with various thought leaders, including Barclays and the London Borough of Lambeth, explored the arguments for and against BYOD schemes, the opportunities and potential threats.

"The closing day of IP EXPO further highlights why it is the UK's number one end-to-end IT infrastructure event," says Hugh Keeble, managing director of event organisers, Imago Techmedia. "We are delighted with the number of delegates, exhibitors and seminars at this year's show.
