The IIAR Summer Party celebrates the IIAR AR Pros and Team of 2017 – Sponsored by TCS

Views and insights, what a party!

The 2017 IIAR London Summer party sponsored by TCS gathered over hundred analysts and AR pros in the Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard.

Following on the IIAR tradition of summer events at landmark venues such as Lords Cricket Grounds and the HMS Belfast, the UK Analyst and Analyst Relations communities gathered at the Shard in London on the 12th July for the annual IIAR Summer party 2017 sponsored by TCS.

Again attending were Analyst Relations professionals from major technology firms such as EY, HCL, Vodafone and Atos plus around 15 analyst firms including Gartner, IDC, PAC, Globaldata, IHS, Ovum, TechMarketView and HFS.

While the wine and beer was flowing there were many conversations on how the analyst and technology landscape is changing with topics such as digital transformation, robotics and cloud transformation.

The main highlight of the evening was the announcement of the AR professionals and AR teams of the year 2017, respectively Signe Loenberg and Cisco received their “trophies” from IIAR Board Member Neil Pollock (@neilpollockLinkedIn). Being Scottish, he turned the customary plaque into whisky.

The event was again kindly sponsored by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). The evening provided a fantastic networking opportunity in a fun setting with a fantastic view of London. The impressive turnout and attendance of wide variety of analysts and AR professionals created an ideal environment for networking and to catch up with existing analyst connections as well as establish new relationships with the ever-growing EMEA analyst community.

The event was hosted by the IIAR UK Chapter co-leads Aniruddho Mukherjee (@aniruddho, LinkedIn) and David Rossiter (LinkedIn@davidrossiter).
