November 7, 2019 | Katrina Hinrichsen


Back for its 5th year this summer, Women of Silicon Roundabout is set to be even bigger than before. Our agenda is now live and packed with a stimulating programme of talks, workshops and more - take a first look.

As Europe's largest conference celebrating the successes and innovations of women across the tech sector, Women of Silicon Roundabout is an unmissable fixture of the tech event calendar. 

Across the two days at ExCeL London, you'll meet leading figures of the industry, discover new trends and get to grips with how to tackle the challenges facing the sector, all in an open and collaborative environment championing inclusivity and driving change. Our agenda has been thoughtfully designed to meet the growing needs of the industry and to ensure that all 7,800 attendees leave ready to make an impact in their field.



Why should you attend Women of Silicon Roundabout 2020?

Our previous Women of Silicon Roundabout events have all been a huge success, each one building on the positives from the year before. 2019 alone welcomed 5,000 tech leaders and digital disruptors, launching with an inspiring first keynote from Baroness Karren Brady.

We've listened to feedback and for the June 2020 edition, we'll have a brand-new event app, a career advice clinic, VR/AR in action, pure-tech soft skills workshops, advance training zones and so much more. Check our website for further updates. We'll also have speakers from established and up and coming companies including Deliveroo, Monzo, BBC, Microsoft, UBS, Financial Times and Amazon Web Services.

"An exhilarating, inspiring, motivating, mind-stretching and thinking out of the box experience!"
