Now marking its 4th year, CMS's International Technology, Media and Communications conference gathers more than 150 delegates, representing the spectrum of technology, media and communications players, plus their financiers and investors.

“Beyond Boundaries” is the conference theme this year.

No longer can businesses be categorised strictly as technology, media or communications players. At this in-depth conference, leading industry players will share how they are working across boundaries and the influence this has on deals, the regulatory environment and potential disputes.

Please register your interest to join us in London.

Partner or buy if you can’t DIY

Organic growth and innovation are increasingly hard to come by. Large companies are progressively acquiring or collaborating with more nimble and younger startups. However, acquiring another business or partnering up is a serious commitment - integration can be a challenge, payback time frames can be long and success is far from guaranteed. What is the recipe for success and what role do VC funds, incubators and innovation consultants play in this ecosystem?

  • Harry Keen, CEO and Co-founder, Hazy
  • Stacey Seltzer, Partner, Prehype
  • Itxaso del Palacio, Investor
