This year, the 7th edition of CogX Festival will be hosted from September 12 to 14 at the iconic new venue – The O2, North Greenwich, London and sites across Canary Wharf.

Started in 2017, CogX is an annual conference and exhibition focused on AI and emerging technology. Over the past six years, CogX has expanded to cover 20 topics ranging from Health and Climate Tech to Ethics while always maintaining a strong programme on AI. The event brings together experts, thought leaders and professionals from various industries to discuss the latest trends, developments, and applications in AI and related fields.

Why the new venue?

The move to The O2 Arena enables CogX to deliver on two critical goals – Inclusivity at Scale and Executive Programme. Firstly, it is important to address the critical questions of this time and the public must be part of the conversation. The scale of this year’s venue and the affiliate programme makes it the most affordable, and hence inclusive, Leadership Summit in the world with prices starting at just £95, and even lower for students.

Secondly, executives value meeting in smaller groups. The new Platinum Pass provides access to The O2’s Arena’s 80 executive suites levels 2 and 3. These offer the best seats and are curated on themes by partners to provide unmatched peer networking. Also, there will be exclusive speaker lunches and dinners and bookable 1:1 meeting spaces.

Charlie Muirhead, CogX CEO said: “The O2 is the only venue where we can do this both inclusively and at the scale needed. We can’t wait to help give thousands of people a chance to participate in the discussion at this critical time in humanity’s evolution. We look forward to welcoming everyone from CEOs to students alike.”

Steve Sayer, VP & General Manager of The O2 said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting CogX at The O2 for the first time ever. The festival programming sets out to explore some hugely important topics in what’s expected to be a fascinating few days of discussion. It’s great to continue to diversify the types of events we host here at the world’s most popular music, entertainment and leisure venue and we look forward to welcoming everyone in September”.

Russ Shaw CBE, Founder of Tech London Advocates commented: “I’m delighted that Tech London Advocates is partnering with CogX for the 2023 Festival, and with the move to The O2 the event is set to be bigger and better than ever. CogX is one of the first dates in my 2023 diary, and the theme of “How do we get the next ten years right?” coinciding with Tech London Advocates’ tenth anniversary feels particularly fitting.
