Join us for a day-long series of presentations, demonstrations and deep dive interactive sessions with the top executives from Imagination.

This is your chance to find out more about everything we do; see it in action; dig into what lies inside; and be inspired to create something truly disruptive.

We’ll also have private rooms to enable you to meet with the Imagination team and discuss your latest project or explore in greater depth under NDA.

We’ll also be explaining how our technologies are at the heart of the most innovative products in mobile, consumer, automotive, IoT, storage, networking, wearables and many other market segments.

If you design hardware or software for SoCs, manage SoC engineering teams or software teams, or are just curious to know more about why Imagination is one of the hottest names in SoC technologies, don’t miss the Imagination Summit 2015.
