Future in Technology

What is Future in Technology?

The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce’s Future in Technology campaign aims to support local businesses in maximising opportunities related to technological development and digital access.

75% of firms across the country have adopted digital technologies and 55% new digital capabilities since March 2020. Over 70% of firms who adopted new technologies say that these have improved business resilience, and over 40% say that the adoption of new technologies has improved their profitability. (Centre for Economic Performance).

Technological innovation and digital adoption continue to present key growth opportunities for businesses in Greater Birmingham.

Future in Technology will take place between 19th – 29th July 2022, kicking off on 19th July with the Chamber’s Quarterly Business Report Briefing for Q2 2022. Throughout the campaign, the GBCC will share briefing papers, blogs and Q&As with experts on ways in which local firms of all sectors and sizes can unlock new opportunities, increase business resilience and grow through the adoption of new technologies and improved digital skills.
