Accelerate Conference 2017 speakers and presentations

On this page, you will find all of our speakers that joint us in March 2017 sharing their views, research knowledge and EDGE experiences. If you happened to miss the conference then please visit the support section within EDGE and go to the article Accelerate EDGE Conference 2017 for the speaker presentations. 

The speakers were excellent, I got some brilliant ideas about how to improve local functionality and it was a valuable opportunity to network and improve collaboration with other sites. A very useful conference and I would definitely recommend it!
