The aim of this event is to provide SMEs with an opportunity to showcase their innovative solutions to leaders and decision-makers in policing IT and digital transformation services.
We will open with a short plenary session from the CIOs on their priorities, challenges and opportunities, and importantly, what they look for in SME partners and how they work with them.
Any member of techUK is welcome to attend this first session.
After this, we have spaces for 5 SMEs* to be involved in the pitch session. Pitch sessions will be 10 minutes each. Members will have up to 5 minutes to deliver their pitch covering their technology and current or potential use cases. Then, the CIOs will use the remaining time to ask questions or offer advice on how they see the technology working for policing.
