About the event

5G is the next generation of wireless communications, set to provide a massive step change in the digitisation of all businesses and wider society over the next decade and more. 5G provides much improved data speeds, bandwidth and security for smartphone users. Yet, 5G achieves so much more beyond consumer connected experiences. 5G is one of the underpinning technologies for our future digital connected world, including for example in manufacturing, transport and logistics, healthcare, workplaces, homes and cities and much more.

This insightful event will bring you up to speed on the current status of these technologies, provide real-world case studies, and help you start to consider the implications for your own sector and the opportunities this may create for your business. This webinar will be chaired by Peter Whale, Founder & CEO of Vision Formers and CW Board Member.
