Microsoft – Future Decoded 2019

Partnering with Microsoft: Future Decoded 2019

Here at JB Events, we are delighted to include Microsoft among our portfolio of repeat clients.

Building long term relationships with clients lies at the heart of our success – and that of the events we deliver.   Working with Microsoft is no exception.  Microsoft has been a JB Events client for nearly 20 years.

JBE Project Director Julie Rowlands leads on the Microsoft account. It’s down to her diligence, professionalism and expertise that we have such a great relationship with Microsoft in the UK.

Twelve months in the planning

Future Decoded 2019 was twelve months in the planning and was the sixth year of the event.  The JBE team has been working on the event from day one.  Once again, Julie’s role was pivotal in its success.  She worked closely with the Microsoft Future Decoded team of internal staff and vendors to keep every aspect of the project on track.  Her role meant monitoring progress and keeping everything running smoothly right up until the doors at London ExCeL closed on 2 October – and beyond.

The event attracted a massive audience of over 10,000 attendees over two days. Each day was full of action packed keynote presentations, breakout sessions, live streaming and networking opportunities. All co-ordinated by JB Events, so there was no margin for error when it came to keeping things running smoothly.

Explore technology; prepare for the future

Day one invited delegates to explore technology as an enabler.  Day two focussed on preparing for the future of work in an AI-driven era.  The overall key objective of the event was to make sure that everyone left Future Decoded with sufficient practical advice on how best to leverage the latest technology trends within their own business.  And with over 200 different presentations and sessions taking place over the two days, there was no shortage of information, inspiration and expertise on hand.

JB Event’s remit was to manage the logistics and production elements of the event. Our role was to make sure that every aspect of the event ran smoothly and that the content sessions ran to schedule, had all the support they needed and that any last minute challenges were dealt with efficiently and discreetly. And with high profile, inspirational speakers, business critical content and an audience of senior business and technical decision makers in attendance, every one of our team was kept on our toes!

At the end of the day, we were delighted to be at the beating heart of Future Decoded 2019.
