With invaluable support from digital delivery consultancy Axiologik – who recently co-hosted a roundtable event to gain feedback on the report – techUK will explore a visionary blueprint for the next government to leverage technology and drive positive changes across various sectors in the country.
With the report highlighting several challenges – including tech adoption, investment and procurement – techUK aims to lay out how policymaking can grow the UK economy by supporting the technology sector. techUK will deliver their presentations during the Conservative conference in the first week of October and at the Labour conference from the 8th to the 11th of October, among other political conferences.
During the conferences, techUK will also host ‘Tech Tuesdays,’ a series of specific tech events aimed at fostering technological advancements and innovation across various sectors.

In the lead-up to the party conferences, Axiologik and techUK joined forces to co-host a high-level roundtable event at Axiologik’s HQ in Leeds. The roundtable brought together industry leaders and experts to delve into the critical issues facing the UK tech sector.
