IIAR UK Networking Event Attracts Top Analysts

More than 35 top-name analysts attended last week’s IIAR UK networking event in a gathering that saw some 70 analyst and AR professionals get together on a (rare!) sunny afternoon.

It was a fantastic few hours in which Gartner, Forrester, IDC, Informa and Ovum were all well represented. We were also lucky to be able to spend time with a number of analysts from Freeform Dynamics and Celent in addition to those more niche specialists including RedMonk, Disruptive Analysis, PAC, CCS Insight and euroLAN Research.

Helen Ridgway, Managing Director at AxiCom said, “This is the second year that AxiCom has sponsored the IIAR Networking Event and we were delighted with the turnout. It is a great opportunity for us to say ‘thank you’ to the analysts for all their work over the year and to share and collaborate on best practices with AR peers. We are very pleased to be associated with the IIAR and the work that it does to serve the global AR community.”

Attendees were treated to drinks and canapés kindly provided via sponsorship from AxiCom with support from the IIAR. We are hugely grateful to AxiCom for their continued support of this event.
Here are some of the things both analysts and our members said about the evening:
