Dear Members of the UK Government,

Following the successful convening of the AI Safety Summit 2023, we find ourselves at the threshold of a new era, one where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to redefine the contours of business, education, and society. It is in this context that I extend a cordial invitation to you to play a leading role at the upcoming Steam AI Conference & Expo, scheduled for February 1, 2024, at the iconic Science & Industry Museum in Manchester.

The North as a Beacon of AI Innovation

Hosting the Steam AI Conference & Expo in the North aligns seamlessly with the government’s ‘levelling up agenda’, showcasing our commitment to fostering innovation and educational excellence across every region of the UK. Your presence would not only amplify this message but also serve as a guiding light for businesses, educators, and innovators in the North and beyond.

Building on the AI Safety Summit Legacy

The AI Safety Summit, hosted by the Prime Minister at Bletchley Park, set a remarkable precedent in understanding and managing AI risks. The Steam AI Conference & Expo aims to be a natural continuation of this dialogue, focusing on the practical implications and opportunities arising from safe and innovative AI use for UK businesses and educational institutions.

Why Your Leadership Matters

As esteemed leaders of our nation, your participation and insights would be invaluable in helping our attendees – which include business leaders, educators, startups, and investors – navigate the evolving landscape of AI. Your perspectives on how the decisions made at the AI Safety Summit will influence their strategies and operations would be of profound significance.

A Platform for UK Advancement

The conference is a dedicated platform for UK-centric discussions, aiming to equip our businesses and educational bodies with the tools and knowledge to harness AI effectively. It is an opportunity to spotlight how UK organisations can gain a competitive edge through AI, and how our educational institutions can prepare the next generation for an AI-driven future.

Your Role at the Steam AI Conference & Expo

We envisage your role as a beacon of knowledge and inspiration, providing invaluable insights into the government’s vision for AI in the UK. Your participation in keynotes, panels, and discussions would not only lend gravitas to the event but also offer tangible guidance to attendees on leveraging AI for growth and innovation.

In conclusion, your presence at the Steam AI Conference & Expo would be immensely beneficial in shaping the discourse on AI in the UK. It would send a powerful message about the government’s commitment to fostering AI innovation and education, especially in the North of the UK.

We would be honoured to have you play a leading role in this landmark event. For further details, please feel free to contact Simon Grice at
