The Disruptor Zone

Start-up companies and ‘disruptors’ are changing the face of the information industry and quickly responding to technology changes, user behaviour and customer needs. As the landscape shifts we, as an industry, must stay at the forefront of developments and the new products and services available to us.

London Info International allows attendees to witness the shift by putting a spotlight on the opportunities that lay ahead of us. The forces that continue to shape the world of scholarly, research and professional information will be highlighted in the LII ‘Disruptor Zone’

What is the ‘Disruptor Zone”?

A moderated competitive event, taking place on the showfloor stages at LII, which will be available to all LII attendees and delegates. This competitive event is designed to offer start-ups, vendors and publishers the opportunity to showcase their newest and most innovative products, platforms and/or content. The showfloor sessions will give the audience a chance to learn about, assess and discover those that have the potential to have the greatest impact on the information community.

Day one – two sessions

These organisations will present their business concept in short, timed presentations to independent judges and attendees on the London Info International showfloor. Attendees will score each presentation and the votes on each presentation, combined with the judges input, will determine a winner from each session.

Day two

The two first round winning organisations will be invited to present to the conference delegates as part of the main conference programme. After a further round of voting an overall winner will be declared.

The Disruptor Wall

The Disruptor Wall is a display area for Disruptor Zone participants to showcase and highlight their ideas, for exhibition attendees and delegates to find out more about their products/services.

Good luck to all of the participants!
