The launch of Big Data LDN

As an industry that is worth £36bn to the UK economy, it’s fair to say that the event market is booming. So, with this much competition, how do you go about bringing a brand new show to life? This is the question Event Director, Bill Hammond, found himself asking before launching Big Data LDN.
