Welcome to the October 2014 Newsletter.

This issue of the Cloud Hosting e-newsletter coincides rather nicely with one of the largest IT events in the UK calendar, IP Expo on Oct 8th/9th at ExCel London. The opening keynote speech will be delivered by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, who TIME magazine included in its “Top 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century”. In his first address to the core IT community of IP Expo Europe, Sir Tim will outline his 2050 vision for the web and how businesses will use it for competitive advantage.

We bring you a full preview of the event in our feature here ("The IP Crowd"), including a breakdown of the many informative summits and conferences taking place during the show. If you only attend one IT show this year, IP Expo should probably be it; and look out for the Cloud Hosting team while you're there!
