Osborne Clarke has signed up as headline sponsor of Venturefest 2017, an events programme rolled out in dialogue with the tech community in Bristol & Bath on the subject of smart cities.
The initiative will run from February to October, focusing on uncovering the challenges of creating smarter cities, and how the Bristol & Bath tech cluster can respond and benefit. Venturefest promotes the South West’s reputation as a global leader in smart city-related innovation, with the aim of attracting investment and jobs to the area.
