Cloud 2014 newtorking

2015 will see the 6th edition of Holyrood Connect’s Cloud Computing Conference, the annual gathering of ICT professionals from across Scotland’s public and third sector with an interest in the cloud and its potential. Since its launch in 2010, this event has established itself as the natural choice for delegates, speakers and providers looking to engage with digital leaders from councils, the NHS, emergency services, education institutions and the third sector.

Holyrood Connect’s 5th annual Cloud Computing Conference in September 2014 attracted over 100 attendees and featured contributions from figures including Tony Singleton OBE, G-Cloud Programme Director and Julie Kane, Head of Digital Public Services Strategy and Policy at the Scottish Government. As last year, sponsors will benefit in 2015 from a unique opportunity to start and cement relationships through networking, showcasing expertise and engaging with the debate on the use of cloud solutions in the public sector and their role within the digital transformation process.


Exhibiting at Holyrood Connect’s 6th annual Cloud Computing Conference offers an un-missable opportunity to showcase your organisation, services/offerings and meet with existing and potential key client contacts. Investing in an exhibition package will allow your organisation to engage with senior ICT professionals public services across the country.

Tailored breakout sessions, tackling issues of real interest to ICT professionals, provide our partners with the opportunity to shape the debate in a meaningful, thought-provoking way.
