5th October 2021
STC Annual Conference

Silverstone Technology Cluster

In association with Silverstone Park and supported by Hexagon , Beckhoff and EMW.

We look forward to welcoming our STC community for our annual celebration of the continued growth and successes of our cluster. 

We are planning to bring us together in person so we can all enjoy reconnecting with one another in a long-awaited celebration. The Annual Conference will be held at Horwood House near Milton Keynes on Tuesday 5th October 2021, from 09.00 to 17.00.

As the STC is all about bringing people together the day will feature extensive networking opportunities as well as a sit-down networking lunch. We’ve designed the day to be interactive, so we are looking for you to get involved in the open panel discussions as well as being inspired by our keynote speakers.

Senior figures from online shopping giant Amazon’s Web Services division and BAE Systems will be amongst the guest presenters and speakers at next month’s Silverstone Technology Cluster (STC) Annual Conference.

Rob Hodges and Stephanie de Albuquerque, Digital Innovation Lead and Territory Manager at Amazon Web Services, have both been confirmed as speakers, as has Susan Addison, procurement Director for BAE Systems.

The line-up will also include business leaders from the major tech networks based across the Cambridge Oxford Arc – the STC recently became one of nine networks to announce they are working together as a ‘Super Cluster’ to give the business community a credible voice in the government’s shaping of the region.


Speakers confirmed to date are:

·       Toni Harrison, Oxford Innovation Ltd

·       Richard Foster-Fletcher, MKAI

·       Tony Jones, One Nucleus

·       John Gourd, Cambridge Network

·       Rob Hodges & Stephanie de Albuquerque, Amazon Web Services

·       Shai Vyakarnam, entrepreneurship/business scale-up mentor & author

STC CEO Pim van Baarsen has already said the Conference “will be an event with a difference”, with a priority being placed on engagement between panellists and the audience.

These sessions, alongside our inspirational keynote speakers, will make this an event not to be missed. If you want to play an active part in creating new opportunities for your business or simply wish to know what the future will look like in your sector or area, make sure you book today to not miss out!
