Sogeti UK and UNICOM Announce Date and Theme for TestExpo™ 2014

Following the successful TestExpo™ 2013 UK conference, Sogeti UK and  UNICOM reveal this year’s TestExpo event will take place in London on 21  October 2014 

London, UK, 7 May 2014 - Sogeti UK, a leading provider of professional technology services specialising in software testing, and UNICOM, a global conference and training company, announce the return of the UK’s largest and most renowned software testing event on 21 October 2014, for what will be the 30th TestExpo™.

Last year’s hugely successful TestExpo conference was the first to be jointly hosted by Sogeti and UNICOM and has sparked a strong partnership between the two businesses. They will play to their strengths to produce an extremely high standard event.

Each year the TestExpo programme is updated and refreshed with exciting new themes and topics that impact today’s business. For 2014 the key theme addressed will be “Defining the Digital Testing Strategy”. This very current topic will aim to address how technology and software are moving towards an increasingly digital landscape, how this is impacting testing and what needs to change in order to keep up with the pace of innovation.

In 2013 a number of new features were introduced to the TestExpo programme, such as increased opportunities to network, share tips, and facilitated round table discussions which received excellent feedback from the audience. All are to be repeated in 2014 alongside the usual thought-provoking keynotes, case studies and presentations delivered by thought leaders and experts from leading organisations in the software testing arena.

What sets TestExpo apart its emphasis on knowledge sharing and "real life" experience, providing participants with insight into how other organisations are leading the field in testing and quality assurance. The sessions and exhibition are structured to maximise opportunities for visitors and exhibitors to network and interact and learn about new opportunities, with the option to view demos, and learn about
innovative ideas and techniques.

“Working with the Sogeti team last year to organise TestExpo was a fantastic experience which culminated in an event that received great feedback from delegates, speakers and sponsors alike. The structured breakout sessions proved a big hit with everyone and will be central to this year’s programme - whilst continuing the same successful format. TestExpo again introduces new topics, ideas and speakers in order that all participants come away with the most up to date testing and QA knowledge to apply”, says Alec McCutcheon, Director of UNICOM.

Lara Irwin, UK Marketing Director at Sogeti comments: “Sogeti is delighted to be collaborating again with UNICOM to organise TestExpo 2014 and build on the fantastic response generated by last year’s event. It really is fantastic to be part of an event that continues to address cutting edge challenges in Testing, but most of all it’s great to see so many organisations benefit from sharing their wins, their ideas and their challenges in a community that is able to provide the right level of help and support.”
