Sir Tim Berners-Lee to open IP EXPO Europe

In his first address to the core IT community of IP EXPO Europe, Sir Tim will outline his 2050 vision for the web and how businesses will use it for competitive advantage.

Above all, he’ll look at how businesses – and the people who lead them – will shape the next phase of the web’s remarkable development.

The speech will mark the 25th anniversary of the first draft of a proposal for what would become the World Wide Web. To mark this milestone, he will share his vision for successful business on the Web – from predicted challenges and the technology businesses will use to overcome them, through to the key innovations that will help drive future success, improve customer experience and create new markets.

Sir Tim comments; “I am greatly looking forward to addressing key decision makers in European business at IP EXPO Europe. The issues that will shape the future of the web – from privacy and data regulation, to sustainability and responsibility – don’t just touch our businesses, they touch our lives, and it’s thrilling that we are all at the very epicenter.”

Sir Tim’s opening keynote will be followed by a program from leading technology influencers; including Cloudera’s Doug Cutting, creator of Hadoop, and Mark Russinovich, Technical Fellow at Microsoft.
