York, UK, 19th March 2012 – Infrastructure and software solutions Value Added Reseller, Trustmarque, announced today that renowned broadcaster and business commentator Robert Peston will deliver the headline keynote address at its annual customer conference, 360˚ Technology, at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London on the 18th May.

We are looking forward to what I’m sure will be an insightful and fascinating address.”

Robert Peston will also be hosting an exclusive, high-level roundtable discussion at the event where delegates will be invited to pose questions and discuss trends and business drivers for change in the technology space.

Free to attend and conveniently located at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, 360˚ Technology will be packed full of informative seminars, practical demonstrations, best-in-class manufacturers, and industry comment and opinion of the highest quality.

Scott Haddow commented, “In today’s tough climate it is absolutely critical that organisations ensure their IT processes and strategy reflect their long-term business ambitions. This event is designed to help our customers take an integrated view of their technology options and to align their technology strategy to business goals to help them to avoid unnecessary costs and improve efficiencies. Robert Peston’s expertise in analysing developments in financial markets and considering the impact that these will have on UK businesses will provide an invaluable and unmissable insight for those that attend.”
