We are planning a series of networking meet-ups, public lectures and possibly demonstrations of driverless vehicles in June 2017 as part of UK Robotics Week 2017.
Locations will include a selection from the following list: Milton Keynes, Bristol, London, Birmingham, Coventry, Manchester, Brighton, Sheffield, Southend or Leeds, we’re fairly open minded but it does need to have a population of at least 250,000 and a very active start-up community.
Venues are essential in each city, so we need to find:
- A networking / meetup space for 40 people seated theatre style from 11.30am-2.30pm (1 per city per day)
- A theatre for a public lecture with 100-150 seats (maybe 1 or 2)
- Outdoor city-centre space for a driverless vehicle demo a week beforehand (we’d like to do this – still looking into logistics and how many cars we can get hold of… this is tricky)
And this part is really important – we’d like to partner with existing education / outreach organisations who have aligned activities we can help promote and support (particularly computer science, robotics, with strong schools and public engagement… or support to makers, start-ups in the digital sector, etc) as well as an existing event / marketing team we can talk to.
