THE 3rd


Why should you join British-Polish IT Forum?


The world is facing an acute shortage of skilled IT workers to drive forward a tech-based economic recovery. For the UK, already lacking in around 800,000 programmers, developers, engineers and computer scientists, the problem is made worse by the ending of freedom of movement from the EU.


At the same time, Poland’s tech sector is developing rapidly, driven by inward investment, multinational corporations’ IT hubs and a vigorous start-up scene. The UK is seen by ambitious Polish tech firms as an excellent springboard to global growth, providing an excellent opportunity for the Polish-British partnership to share knowledge, drive innovation and find technological solutions to global problems.


This event, bringing together tech buyers, vendors and outsourcing companies interested in exploring the potential of the British- Polish IT partnership and co-operation IT.
