Join us on May 12

Looking back shows us how far we've come - and shapes our future.

At The National Museum of Computing you'll see how far we've come, experiencing first-hand the transformation and innovation of technology, and its impact on our culture.

From the oldest working digital computer to the metaverse, we have witnessed an ongoing, accelerating technological evolution.

This evolution demands increasingly innovative responses involving continuous transformation of everything from internal operations to market-facing business models.

Our presenters take the stage in front of the world's oldest original working digital computer (W.I.T.C.H) to showcase how the ability to react to change is what sparks true innovation.
