What to expect

Introducing CTO Craft Con: London 2024

Following two sell out conferences in 2023, we are proud to announce the launch of CTO Craft Con: London 2024. 


Moving to a new home in the heart of London, the QEII, CTO Craft Con 2024 will welcome over 500 CTOs and senior technology executives from startups, scaleups, soonicorns, unicorns, big tech and more to tackle the biggest challenges facing the industry in a safe, collaborative and inclusive peer-to-peer environment.


With more speakers, content, formats, attendees and best-in-class solution providers than ever before, CTO Craft Con 2024 is a must-attend for CTOs and those on their CTO journey looking to hone their craft and accelerate their effectiveness as a leader.


The four content pillars of CTO Craft Con 2024

CTO Craft Con: London will encompass four themes:

Leadership, Culture, Technology and Wellbeing.


These are the four content pillars of the CTO Craft community and, we believe, tackle the core challenges faced by CTOs and senior technology leaders at organisations of all shapes and sizes.


By targeting these four key content pillars, CTO Craft Con 2024 will equip CTOs and senior technology leaders with a plethora of tactical actions and strategic inspiration to take back to their day-to-day roles.

New Formats 

2024 will see the return of old favourites, such as keynotes, panels and lightning talks, but will also introduce new formats, including roundtables.

The roundtables will take place alongside the main stage content, offering attendees the ability to tailor their day to their specific needs.


The aim of the roundtables is to provide a much more targeted and personal conversation on specific topics and will be led by a moderator and storyteller. They will be limited to 20 attendees who can listen in and contribute freely.


Registration will be required to secure your seat at these roundtables, so getting in early is essential, as spaces will fill up fast! 


Unparalleled Networking Opportunities 

CTO Craft is not just an event; it’s a community of over 6,000 tech leaders, innovators, and change-makers. It’s a platform where you can connect with like-minded professionals, share your challenges, and forge meaningful relationships that can drive your career and projects forward.  CTO Craft Con is designed to facilitate networking in both formal and informal settings, ensuring you make valuable connections that extend beyond the conference doors.
