About Us

Founded in 2016, Connected Data London defined and brought to the fore a new domain. We have been working with our community and partners to push the boundaries of innovation, awareness and adoption on the intersection of Knowledge Graphs, Graph Databases, Analytics, AI, Data Science and Semantics Technology, 


We are like you. Practitioners, enthusiasts, data geeks extraordinaire. We are looking for insights in data, order in chaos, and meaningful connections. We love playing with data, graphs, algorithms, semantics. It’s more than a job – it’s a passion.

Back in 2016, we felt something was missing from the events picture. An event that is focused, but not niche. Inclusive, but selective.


An event that is vendor neutral and no-nonsense. An event that gets today’s leaders and tomorrow’s innovators together, and lets everyone mingle and share the knowledge.

We wanted an event that connects more than data and technology – an event that connects people and ideas. So we made the road by walking, and put our money where our mouth was: we started our own event. Connected Data London has gone global, and became Connected Data World.

Our Team.
