This week we have been at the AI Summit in New York, after being selected to join the Department for International Trade (DIT) trade mission from the 3rd to 7th December 2018.
The DIT trade mission is focused on companies with unique AI or machine learning (ML) product offerings for the US market and experience working with US clients. Smartology is one of only 11 AI tech companies selected by the UK government to showcase their cutting edge technology in the US. The trade missions will provide an opportunity to:
- meet with US corporations
- connect with influencers in the New York tech community
- gain valuable insight into doing business overseas
Mark Bembridge CEO, Smartology says: “Trade missions such as this are vital in helping us to forge a network in the target country and act as a door opener to US businesses and the wider tech community. The AI Summit provides us with an opportunity to not only demonstrate our technology, but also to bang the drum for British tech.”
Now in its third year in New York, the AI Summit hosts more than 3,000 attendees with insight into AI solutions spanning all industry sectors and offers participants multiple business-building opportunities.
Previous trade missions have seen UK companies learn best practices about US expansion strategy, generate sales in the US market, and network with top-level industry executives. The 2017 mission to the AI Summit led to immediate benefits for UK participants.
