LONDON | British Polish Chamber of Commerce | 1st Polish-British IT Forum

This event serves to highlight the benefits that cooperation with Poland can bring in IT. Speakers from UK firms with tech operations in Poland will explain why they chose to set up there, while Polish tech firms will showcase some large projects they have undertaken for UK clients in sectors such as AI, VR, healthcare, smart cities, imaging, games, FinTech and insurance.

As well as giving British tech buyers a deep insight into why Poland is such a good place for solving their IT problems, this event will also be an opportunity to meet with senior people from Poland’s IT industry to discuss what’s the best way forward – in-house investment into Poland, or outsourcing to reputable Polish firms with a solid track record in delivering projects to UK corporates.

The event is designed to facilitate contact between British and Polish firms, making it easy to identify firms with the technologies you need to achieve your business goals through better use of tech.
