Event: The COP26 Regional Roadshow East Midlands

The COP26 Regional Roadshow East Midlands will take place on 11 November 2021.

The conference will be hosted by Nottinghamshire’s 5G Partnership from the new Digital Innovation Centre in the Worksop Turbine building; powered by energy generated by the wind turbine at the centre. Talks will be taking place all day, you just drop into the sessions you are interested in – and there will be great networking opportunities throughout the day.
