The focus for this year’s summit is sharper than ever, zeroing in on the advancements in photonics technologies, quantum computing, cryptography, and more. It’s a powerhouse event designed to bridge quantum companies with supply chain partners, tackling the industry’s biggest challenges head-on.

Bristol, with its rich legacy in quantum research, doesn’t just host the event; it’s a central figure, embodying the spirit of innovation that drives the quantum realm. This setting promises an enriching experience for all attendees, offering a rare blend of historical significance and cutting-edge research. The Summit is being held at Bristol’s M Shed on 19th and 20th November, 2024.

The lineup of speakers is nothing short of impressive, featuring quantum luminaries like Mehdi Namazi of Qunnect, Tom Darras of Welinq, and Fabian Reichert of TESAT, among others. Each will share insights and breakthroughs, promising to make this summit a crucible of quantum innovation.
